My answers to; Make to learn
What did you make?
I've made a simple programmed nightlight. It runs arduino and it keeps the "boogie man" away.
How did you make it?
I was inspired to make this by dablondeemus's instructable. I turned this into a quick project. I worked by myself on this, and I did change one idea. Instead of polyfill for the cloud I used cottonballs. Cotton balls are of easy access to me.
Where did you make it?
I made this 100% at home. This project connected to other parts of my life with the arduino. I hope to one day be an inventor, and have most of my prototypes run arduino.
What did you learn?
I learned how to do simple programming on the arduino. I really didn't have any surprises during the build except for putting the WRONG glue on the plastic container! The biggest problem I had was running out of cotton balls. If I had to do it again, I would have it run a more complicated arduino.
Step 1: Supplies
1 light, transparent container * make sure it's clean
Thread or fishing line*not pictured
Arduino *I'm using uno
Hot/Gorrilla glue*plenty of it
