So I have been on Google and have been messing around with a few parts including the: Flex Sensor, the potentiometer, the buzzer, the push to make button, and the photosensor! Since I have no followers :( I will not post sketches, but if you need one just message me!
Well that didn’t work! I am a little discouraged, but I discovered a few sensors that I have no idea what they do, so I shall see!
I started this blog a little after I ordered my Arduino and I am already using it. I only bought the starter kit, so I haven’t done any fancy projects. For those of you who do not know what an Arduino is, an Arduino is a micro-controller. I can attach a few parts to it and upload code to it and I can make it do anything. Like for instance, attach wheels to it, and attach a PING sensor (Kind of like Sonar), so it will drive and if it gets to close to something it will automatically turn a different way and drive. So far I have: Used a Photosensor to make a LED light turn on when the laser is tripped, and I have used a thermometer. And right now I am stumped. I cant figure out how to hook up my new LCD Screen to my Arduino, I have gone through (I kid you not) 14 tutorials. I am going to try a new one, so fingers crossed.
Alright, I’ll introduce myself before anything. I am a 15 year old boy, that is going into 10th grade. I live in Vicenza, Italy because of the work my dad does. I have adequate knowledge in coding, hacking, and I am beginning in electrical engineering. I am a Boy Scout, who in a few weeks should have his Eagle Scout. I love bike riding, and I wrestle even though I am horrible at it. In fact I am not good at sports at all, but like a friend said: I am not afraid to go out there and make a fool of myself. My favorite Genre of music is Dubstep, I am a Brony (No I am not of Homosexual orientation, even though I have nothing against you guys.), and finally I have a sister who is in University, a Dad and a Mom, and a Yorkshire Terrier whose name is Sofia.
