If you are searching for an easy to build yet fun electronics project you may be interested in the fantastic ePaper Maze Maker project which requires no soldering and uses just two parts. The Adafruit Metro M4 Express and the Adafruit 2.7″ Tri-Color eInk / ePaper Shield with SRAM. If you prefer or have one already the Metro M4 or Metro M4 Airlift Express can also be used if more accessible.
Once built ePaper Maze Maker will generate random mazes and their solution and is suitable for all ages with three difficulty levels to choose from. “This project does not use WiFi, so it will work with either the Metro M4 Express or the Metro M4 Express Airlift. This project can be made portable by adding a battery, making it a great activity to take on a long car ride to minimize hearing “Are we there yet?” from the back of the car.”
“The original maze generator code this project is based on was written over 20 years ago in C for printing random mazes on paper. The use of the ePaper shield in this project brings a modern touch to this classic code.”
