Light Detector Board is Your Project’s Eyes

When we want to build automated interactive projects, like a robot, musical alarm, or just something to scare our pets, it’s easy to get caught up in the OUTPUT (what our mad-scientist project DOES), but it’s just as important to think about the INPUT (what we want to trigger that output). For example, suppose I […] Read more

Cold weather things go back into storage while […] Read more
