This week we decided to change our original idea of a cuckoo clock to a penny box that will show the fire flies when you insert pennies. This will be easier for us to code as we struggled to get the coding right for the clock on the Arduino.
For every penny inserted, a fire fly will show. We plan on having 2 fire flies. One will show for the first 5 pennies inserted and glow its tail. The second one will come out on the 6th penny inserted and flap its wings as well as glow its tail. Then it will all start again. Possibly a good way to collect money for charity?
