I finally did something with my arduino & other electronics! Specifically, I made a little RGB light thingie. Well, the actual light thingie was a kit from SparkFun that I soldered together, but still. I soldered it together! And then connected it to an arduino and now the lights sit there constantly changing colour based on a pattern I wrote! Now I’m excited for night to come so I can see it in darkness!
(An arduino is a cheap, low-power computer used as a simple embedded system, generally used by artists and hobbyists to do silly, fun, and / or artistic things.)
I’ll get a pic tonight, maybe even a movie, so you guys can see my little project. This post would be more useful if I’d waited til I had that to show off, but I’m too excited. :-)
Now I’m off to put another one of these things together!
