Today was the first day back from winter break. We broke into groups, and worked with either the Raspberry Pi, the Phidgets or the Arduino. I worked with the Arduino.
I messed with it for a while, and eventually made a simple circuit that ran a simple. pre programmed code to make a LED light bulb fade in and out.
I did all of this by following a few simple instructions on the Arduino website (http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/Fade)
, and a little critical thinking.
