Project GuitARS brings the rock out of your living-room! It is a game played with a guitar-shaped usb controller on a 5100m² LED facade. The player has to hit the buttons and stroke on the controller at the right time, depending on the falling blocks on the building.

The game was developed during the course "interface technologies" with Robert Praxmarer at the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences.

Project GuitARS was written in Java, the controller input is piped via xpadder. A note-recording tool was written in C++.
