Event Details

We'll be using arduino to do an edge-lit acrylic lighting project.  This will involve:


 - bread-boarding, placing a number of circuit elements unto a solderless breadboard and connecting the bread-board to your Arduino pins.

 - attaching a super bright RGB (Red Green Blue) LED (Light Emitting Diode) to the acrylic and wiring it into the bread-board.

 - writing code to make the RGB LED do pretty things.  A momentary switch on the bread-board will allow the use of multiple modes without changing the program.  Your imagination will be the only limit to how colorful or complicated it will be.  Properly controlled an RBG LED can make any color that the human eye can perceive - and it can fade between them!


I will prepare small kits for each attendie, consisting of a small bread-board, the RGB LED, a bunch of wires, the mom-switch, and a laser-cut, laser-rastered peice of acrylic.  The $20 charge is for these materials, you'll get to keep them all at the end of the night (repurpose and use them for your next project!).  Bring your own Arduino - any Arduino will do, including clones.  Arduino's can be purchased at Creatron.  You'll also need to bring a laptop so that you can write your own code.


This class is a follow up to the previous arduino workshop, but is still suitable for near-beginners.  You should have your arduino working, software installed, and understand the Examples->Basics->Blink example.
