This is my very first project and after having read about all kinds of awesome, innovative, smart, crazy, serious and amazingly playful things all of you have come up with, I would very much love to share mine too.
I only have a very basic set of parts: an Arduino Uno with breadboard and cables, some LEDs, Resistors, a rotary potentiometer, a pushbutton, and a piezo (this I want to use later too). I wanted to make a little game out of those and had an idea I called “Match the Light”. Out of a line of 5 red LEDs, one is chosen and lit randomly and the player uses the rotary potentiometer to light up the matching green light. If it is the right match and a button is pressed, the game is won. The player can restart, by choosing the yellow restart LED that is next to the green ones.
I hope you enjoy my little project. I had lots of fun inventing and building it and it gave me great satisfaction to see it running eventually.
Each Monday is ArduinoMonday here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Arduino related products. Adafruit manufactures the Arduino right here in the United States in cooperation with arduino.cc. We have a huge selection of Arduino accessories and all the code and tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
