Week 2 – Kyrie Roberts & Joe Tapson

For this week we looked at code for our project as well as buying materials we would need. We tested having various LEDs attached on one breadboard and now we have some conductive tape we want to test to see if we can use that as a switch. 17194105_1869153966658953_616600593_o

We found one blog post that could be useful in our project – http://howdweknows.blogspot.co.uk/2011/03/diy-touch-sensor.html?m=1

The next step is to see if we can use the serial monitor along with the conductive tape so we can see what kind of values we are getting and code accordingly. We also want to look into how to get a led to dim before turning off fully. We also had a look at some other solutions for the led strip including a solution from Arduino however these require additional power from an external source.
