Week 1 – Tom Bolsover, Jacob Avent, lewis Tudge

For our Arduino project we are planning to design and build a firefly with a flashing light up tail and flapping wings. This fire fly could be used as an alarm clock, miniature sculpture, or a toy. The Base will be a hollow box that the Arduino kit and the breadboard will fit into and stay hidden, it will also have space for a 9 volt battery. With these parts built into the bottom it should give it enough weight to not fall over. The fire fly will be held up by a hollow tube allowing the wires to travel to the components. The main body of the fire fly will be big enough to hold a small electric motor and a LED. It will be an estimate of 2 – 3 inches long. The fire fly will either be controlled by a button or a LDR.
