Well it has been a while sense I posted the main reason I have been away is I got a new toy, the new toy is an Arduino. What is an Arduino you might ask? Well a Arduino is a small micro-controller that can be used to control things from little lights to robots.
As you can see there was a lot of stuff that came with it I will do my best to remember the names of everything. Starting from the top Left it is listed below.
- Arduino Uno R3
- Rubber Feet
- Battery Power Pack
- Prototype Shield
- Female and Male Pin-outs
- LED Green and Red
- AC Adapter
- Bundle of 20 Gage Jumper Wires
- Bag of LED’s, Resistors, Buttons, Potentiometer
- USB Cable
Here is the Close up of the Prototype Shield
So now it is time that I have to build the prototype shield board this required me to solder everything together but first I needed to put the parts into the board and placed correctly into the board. Here is a picture of everything placed where it needs to go and getting ready to solder it all together.
I will have the final project completed later today and will get pictures of it up and maybe even video of the test with the project working. First test is to make sure the LED’s will light up when power is applied to the board.
