I have never considered myself much of a techie guy so this process has been a challenge for me.
I began the experimentation process by going through the examples in the Arduino program, however, I could not get a set of two LED’s to turn on.
Frustrated; after a couple of tries, I decided to read this blog and see if that would help me in one way or another. I read and compared almost every set of code most of my classmates had played with (except Jung’s, I don’t own a toy I am willing to cut open, yet). 😀
Two of my failed attempts:
That shade of orange might now be my least favorite color.
finally, after what seemed an eternity, I was able to learn from Julia’s code! With her post I was not only able to make my own crowded little rainbow, but also play around with the speed at which the lights would change colors! Thank you Julia!
Below you’ll find a link to my Instagram account where I posted the video of my little success.
