Claim of US Patent No. 11,027,211

1. A game set for sensing, and responding to, a physical phenomenon using three or more devices, the game set comprising:a first device comprising, in a first enclosure:
a first connector for electrically connecting to another device;
a second connector capable of mating with the first connector, for electrically connecting to another device; and
a sensor having an output coupled to the first or second connector for sensing a physical, chemical, or biological phenomenon;
a second device comprising, in a second enclosure:
a third connector that is identical to the first connector for electrically connecting to another device;
a fourth connector that is identical to the second connector capable of mating with the third connector, for electrically connecting to another device; and
a power source coupled to the third or fourth connector for powering another device;
and a third device comprising, in a third enclosure:
a fifth connector that is identical to the first connector for electrically connecting to another device;
a sixth connector that is identical to the second connector and is capable of mating with the fifth connector, for electrically connecting to another device; and
a payload coupled to the fifth or sixth connector to be electrically powered from the power source and for converting an electrical power from the power source to a non-electrical type of energy,
wherein the game set further comprising a switch connectable between the power source and the payload,
wherein upon electrically connecting the first, second, and third devices in any order using the connectors, the payload is operated or activated by switching electrical power from the power source to the payload via the switch in response to the physical phenomenon sensed by the sensor, and
wherein two or more of the connectors are operative to concurrently connect both power and digital data signals between the respectively connected devices.
