2014-12-16 (Tu) Color/Touch Sensory Panel

The programming cable for the Arduino Mini Pro was loaned to Joe Robertson for the Arduino Laser Tag project so it was not available. The Arduino Mini Pro was was removed from the prototyping board and jumper test wires were run between the relevant pins of each board.

Arduino boards connected with jumper test wires

The pseudo random color code was rewritten as a function and changed from writing the pseudo random variables directly to the NeoPixels and first writes them to part of a 2D integer array then writes them to the NeoPixel. This way the current color is stored on the controller which will be important for other color changing routines such as RAINBOW.

The second, third, and fourth switch positions were tested but failed because they were not connected. These connections were soldered then tested well in the program.

To do:
  1. Build all light hoods
  2. Build electronics
  3. Program Arduino
    1. Break up tasks
    2. Sketch pseudo-code
    3. Write code for first switch and 4 NeoPixels
  4. Buy, drill, and cut polycarbonate sheet
  5. Install switches
  6. Install light hoods
  7. Install electronics
  8. Install polycarbonate and light diffuser sheets
