Note-holding indicator

Filed under: Exercise 2: Add a Switch,Joe Iloreta — jilore @ 1:06 am

I elaborated on the the previous lamp exercise to make the lighting-up reactive to the interactions with the note-holding portion of the paper weight.

Part One:
By putting together the simple “button” code and “fading” code explored previously, I used two switches on each of the note-holders to activate an LED when something is placed inbetween.

Part 2:
Once a note is placed in each noteholder, I coded the arduino to begin fading each paper weight one LED after the other so that it seems the two separate paper weights can sense when notes have been placed in each one.
