Egg Friend (2019)

Inspired by the Tamagotchis from our youth, we implemented a virtual pet with an 8x8 bi-color LED matrix and FRDM board. The pet had basic functions such as eating and pooping, and the user interacted with the pet through the buttons by feeding it and cleaning up after it. The pet's health status was displayed as well. Our project covered class material such as I/O interfacing and buses. I2C was the protocol to communicate between the board and LED grid.
