The idea is to have lights behind each piece and have different switches connected to each of them. This way I can explore different kinds of switches and be able to make a final product which can be displayed and interacted with.
The idea originated when I thought about making a 3D version of the Join-the-dots game and using LED strips to create a shape which light up when connections are made.
Another idea : I want to try and make this thing on the Netflix website.
This week, we dove in on some additional Arduino-compatible pieces of technology—
Here’s a look at my pared-down sequence of the NeoPixel smart RGBW LED sample code:
This is what a potentiometer can do when paired with a green LED:
And here are some of the speed and acceleration variants easily achieved with a rotating motor:
With these three Arduino sketches I could customize my exterior Christmas light decorations this year. The motor could spin an inflatable Santa Clause figure while LEDs blink away in a barrage of sequences color.
