Kilburn Live
Nerf Basketball Blocker

Kilburn needed a fabrication partner with digital integration capabilities to execute a unique interactive basketball shootout game.

ASTOUND developed a basketball blocker which was designed to push out or block the ball from going through the net, ultimately increasing the overall challenge and excitement for the players. The program was built using a ruggedized Arduino and integrated into the experience using 12V linear actuators that extend or recede the blocker component. Since the shootout is a 1-on-1 game, each blocker had to be completely random so that neither player had an advantage over their competition.
