Coin Counting

After taking an interest in quarter football, I considered the idea of using coins, something everyone has in their pockets, as game pieces. This could also provide a built-in incentive system for players if certain gameplay events result in opponents taking your money!

Unfortunately, the technical tests resulted in less-than-successful results. The coins were unable to reliably reflect light from an infrared LED into an IR camera over a sufficient area to allow for an engaging gameplay experience.
