The Marvellous Melchiades 3000

** What does this game do? ** See a demonstration at https://youtu.be/wHjRDhshu2Y - The idea of the game is to run a show at the event's show&tell. We are hiring for operators of The Marvellous Melchiades 3000, a machine that is able to speak to spirits. A person who wants to know their future stands in front of the machine, presses a button and speaks their question loudly. The machine will then display what the spirits have interpreted their question as, and then will say their fate, through the display and through the various dials and lights. It is up to the operator to read this output and give a convincing interpretation to the customer. The audience will vote whether the interpreter was convincing or not.

Technology Notes: 
** Hardware requirements ** * Arduino Mega - A sketch is provided. See pin definitions for an idea of where to connect what. * Raspberry Pi - A script in Python is ran, which connects to the Arduino and outputs to the screen display. * Lots of LEDs * Two Neopixel strips (3 and 7 long respectively) * A servo * 4 Force Sensing Resistors * A webcam * An ultrasonic distance sensor ** API Requirements ** The game extensively uses publicly available Internet APIs to work. The API keys are not provided in this repository, you can obtain these freely by yourself. * Google Speech API - Use the free tier of Google Cloud API to access this API. Follow the instructions to log in from your Pi. * Giphy API - It is way easier to obtain an API key for this. Put it in the same directory as the README.md.
