Drop a puck into the Plinko game and watch the line drawn on a tablet screen via Bluetooth®!
The Plinko board has an array of light sensors between the pegs. When the puck passes over and blocks the light to the sensor, a command is sent to the PIC® microcontroller. The PIC® MCU talks to a Bluetooth® module to send the sensor coordinate to the application running on the tablet. As the coordinates are sent, a line is drawn showing the path of the the falling puck.

EZ App Lynx is a smartphone/tablet application that pairs with a PIC® MCU over Bluetooth® and allows the PIC® MCUs to control the appearance and control of the GUI on the smartphone/tablet. This allows PIC® MCU developers an easy way to deploy sensors or controllers that can be controlled from a smartphone/tablet over Bluetooth®. The PIC® MCU controls all aspects of the GUI, so the user only needs to install one smartphone/tablet app that works across a broad variety of devices for Android and iOS.
This app requires a Bluetooth® connection to a PIC® MCU using the CCS C Compiler with the EZ App Lynx library. For more information on the application and where to download it, go to: http://www.ccsinfo.com/ezapp
