The simple wire-loop game is often built as a fun project to teach students about electronics. [W&M Levsha] built their own version, showed off their fine crafting and editing skills and branded it as a sobriety test with the playful name “Breathalyser”.
The mechanics of the game are quite simple. The player must guide a metal ring around the puzzle without touching it. A buzzer and light are used to notify the player when they have failed, with the project powered by a small lithium polymer pocket cell that charges via a USB port.
Where this build really shines is in the presentation, with [W&M Levsha] showing that they really have what it takes to do a great job in brass. Instead of a simple bent wire, we are instead treated to a delicately shaped rectangular cross-section bar carved from a single piece of metal. It is paired with a nicely made wand with a knurled handle.
We’ve seen similar displays of their exquisite craft before – like with a custom toothbrush and powder lighter. Video after the break.
