This is a project for Arduino to make a 2D Level, aimed at beginners.

Arduino draws a circle on an LED Matrix that moves around according to readings from a 2D Accelerometer.

* Learn how to draw a circle using simple Maths
* Learn how to use the LOL shield for the Arduino
* Learn how an accelerometer works

Step 1: What you need

You will need:
* Arduino UNO
* LOL shield   (http://jimmieprodgers.com/kits/lolshield/)
* Accelerometer (http://www.oomlout.co.uk/accelerometer-3axis-adxl335-p-247.html)
* Breadboard for wiring up e.g. (http://www.oomlout.co.uk/prototyping-bundle-for-arduino-ardp-p-186.html)
* Some Wires

<p>what is the purpose of drawing a circle instead of a single dot?</p><p>from the level use case point of view, a single dot will be well enough, no? (maybe I missed some point).</p>
