BuzzBox 2 is a computer application that lets you use
the game paddles used by the BUZZ! games for School Reach and Quiz Bowl.
BUZZ! games such as
BUZZ! Junior Jungle Party
are usually bundled with a set of 4 game paddles and are readily available from retail outlets
(such as Future Shop for $12.95).
Each paddle has a big red button that lights up and four smaller coloured buttons.
They connect to the SONY PlayStation 2 and SONY PLAYSTATION 3 game consoles using the same USB interface that is widely used in the computer industry.
We have tested BuzzBox 2 with up to 12 paddles (3 sets of 4 paddles mixing 2 wired sets and one wireless set).
The BuzzBox 2 application installed on a Windows PC or laptop
recognizes the current BUZZ! game paddles and uses them to provide an
electronic lockout system including a simple scoreboard suitable
for School Reach and Quiz Bowl style competition and practice.
You can even go cordless because Buzz! Quiz TV
comes bundled with WIRELESS buzzers and they are also compatible with BuzzBox 2!
