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.
