littleBits Projects: Lucky Love Slot Machine

This is part of an on-going series of posts about littleBits projects. littleBits is available in the Adafruit store – Starter KitExtended KitDeluxe Kit, and Synth Kit.

Lucky Valentine’s Day Slots

Try your luck with the littleBits Lucky Slot Machine and win a handful of candy hearts for your special someone. This slot machine operates just like the real thing. Pull the lever to start the graphics spinning on three DC motors. As they stop spinning in succession, win big when three hearts line up. When the hearts align, so do three bright LEDs and three corresponding light triggers. This signals the servo-activated trapdoor to release a candy jackpot. Find more Valentine’s Day projects made with littleBits here.
