Step 6: Light Sensors

The eyes each include a light sensor in the pupil. Simply find sufficiently large but high gage wire and then solder a line for power onto the longer end of the sensor (if the ends are cut, you may want to test it first in a breadboard) and a shorter line for ground and data. Towards the end of the later wire, solder in another line for analog readings and a 2K ohm resistor with a line purely for ground on the other end. This should create a "Y" like split with one line coming in, one line coming directly out, and a final line with the resistor attached. Do this twice, one for each eye. We found it useful to attach headers to the ends of the wire.
Awesome! Voted!
Nice! you got my vote.
