Memory Game

Last Updated: 7/31/18

Memory Game Module is a simulator for testing the ability to recall a visual display of numbers. The simulator is designed to test the ability of a human being to recall ten numerals viewed in a short duration of time. The simulator is implemented on the Raspberry Pi using the Python 3 Programming language.

Initially, the simulator will display ten numerals in a single bunch on the LCD screen interfaced with the Raspberry Pi. The user will be able to view the ten numerals for 15 seconds and memorize before the display vanishes. Then, the simulator will prompt the user to recall the displayed numerals and type each numeral individually. As each recalled numeral is typed individually, the simulator will display the recalled and the actual numeral that was displayed.

Next, the simulator will again display the second set of ten numerals on the LCD screen but in two groups of five numerals. The user will again have 15 seconds to view the two groups of numerals and memorize. The simulator again will prompt the user to type in the recalled numerals individually and display the recalled and the actual numerals.

Finally, the simulator will display another set of ten numerals in three groups and test the user of their memory recalling ability.

This module is developed on the Raspberry Pi using a 16x2 LCD display and a potentiometer. The simulator is implemented using the “AdafruitcharLCD” library to display the numerals on the LCD screen. This module can be used as a memorization training tool in grades K6 through K8.
