2014-12-24 (W) Color/Touch Sensory Panel

Brainstorming and planning was done while away from the apartment. A page was written which broke down the asks for programming and introduced logical additions to the program such as a start-up sequence which illuminates each color of each NeoPixel. Another addition will be a reed switch which will be used to switch modes. This method of mode switching will replace the three potentiometers since the reed switch can be activated from outside the enclosure and are inexpensive devices which require minimal programming. The programming is even easier since the Bounce2 library has already been integrated.
