2014-12-28 (Su) Color/Touch Sensory Panel

The list of modes was updated to include seven modes instead of the previous three.

     0 -  Random color which fades.
     1 -  Random color from spectrum().
     2 -  Cycle through basic colors.
     3 -  Each light is a different basic color.
     4 -  Like mode 2 but more colors which change more drastically.
     5 -  Whole device is a circular rainbow.
     6 -  Demo mode. Random colors. No switch input.

All the modes were given dedicated functions in the program and the first presentation was defined. When the mode is switched via the reed switch the whole device sets the lights as appropriate. With the first presentation now defined the transitioning of colors should be apparent for some of the modes.

To do:
  1. Build electronics
    1. Solder remaining NeoPixels
    2. Solder three more switches
    3. Solder power terminals for transferring power
    4. Solder terminals for accepting power from source
  2. Program Arduino
    1. Create mode to rotate primary colors & white
    2. Create mode to change all lights when any switch is pressed
    3. Write digital output code for one or two sounds
    4. Write digital input code for reed switch to change modes 
      1. Immediately shows first pattern of scheme when switched
      2. Immediately plays sound if appropriate
  3. Cut and drill polycarbonate sheet
  4. Drill frame for wires
  5. Install switches
  6. Install light hoods
  7. Install electronics
  8. Install polycarbonate and light diffuser sheets
