For the 2013 Spoonflower Staff Challenge, our team decided to make an unconventional quilt. As printer operators, Adam and I (Kelsey) are constantly working with color, while our other teammate, Chad, spends most of his time in the Engineering Department. So, in order to use everyone’s talents, we came up with the idea of an illuminated color wheel quilt.
The fourth step was for Chad to write code for the light pattern. He used an open-source program called Arduino which uses the C programming language to create simple loops that manipulate the actions of the LEDs.
