I disliked having to remember to press button two every sixty seconds, or risk disconnecting. As a solution, I added code so that every time I pressed any button, it would boost the Bluetooth power for one minute.

The directional pad in the controller might be useful in the future, so I wanted some code in place for utilizing it, but nothing that I would regret deleting. The up arrow will increase the onboard LED's brightness, and down will decrease it. The left and right arrow control the strobe rate of the light. Changing modes will overtake the other, so it is not possible to blink at partial brightness. The LED would turn off after one minute so I wouldn't waste battery, but I removed this later so it can flash all day if someone wants the decoration.

There was trouble with the device triggering a vibrate event as I spun in a full circle. As I reached the 60° mark, I got a buzz, so I added a bit called outOfRange that latched high when I was facing away from the origin. When I turned around, the check ensured that I wouldn't get the errant buzzing anymore.
