2015-01-17 (Sa) Color/Touch + Sound

The majority of work today was programming so once again the pictures are pretty blah where I included them. I suppose I could make GIFs of each mode but until the modes are fully agreed upon that could be a waste of time. Maybe just the modes I'm happy with.

Enough background.

The program from the first Color/Touch was still useful since the hardware will be the same except for the sound being added. The variable transitionTime was the delay in the program in milliseconds between each step as colors changed. This was set to 150mS during the demonstration but it was agreed that the transitions were too slow. An analog input with potentiometer on the Arduino was mapped to change the variable at will so each mode could be tested with different transition times. Each mode was called an the most please transitionTime was adjusted and recorded. The lowest time was 10mS and the initial setting of 150mS was kept for the start up presentation.

The rainbowRing, mode 5, was changed so only the outer lights are on. They then rotate whenever any switch is pressed. This method makes the rainbow colors easier to differentiate and identify as a rainbow.

Mode 0, random colors which fade away, was corrected so all the lights turn off when the mode is selected. Before the colors would fade back to the color they were when leaving mode 6. Mode 6 was a demo mode which changed the colors of each light at random.

The box was measured so polycarbonate could be ordered. 14 1/2" x 12 7/8" (368mm x 327mm).
