Has Gunnery Sergeant Hartman (Full Metal Jacket) says during the riffle pray “There are many like it, but this one is mine”
Step 1: Material
Indeed there is many project like available on internet.
This one use a tilt switch as trigger
1 x Arduino board (http://shop.snootlab.com/lang-en/arduino/68-arduino-duemilanove.html)
7 x 500 ohms resitors ¼ W
7 x basic red leds
1 x 10 k ohms resitors ¼ W
1 x tilt switch (I use this one http://shop.snootlab.com/lang-en/parts/96-tilt-sensor.html)
A piece of prototyping board plated holes
Male header (0,1") 1 row, 40 pins (need only 28 for complet arduino connexion , and realy need 10 for this project) http://fr.mouser.com/ProductDetail/FCI/68004-236/?qs=sGAEpiMZZMtsLRyDR9nM10aphOtlQBeldG%252bobNTQj6E%3d
A PC to program the arduino
An soldering iron
Step 2: Prepare the board
For this kind of board, just score with a sharp knife, place a metal ruler or similar on the top and snap it.
Then you have to solder the Male header.
First cut the male header in
2 pieces of 8 pins
2 pieces of 6 pins
Then, solder the Male header. Take care of the two 8 pins. They must be tilted to fit the arduino connectors. First, make a try with a single soldering point.
You can find instructable of this here =>http://www.instructables.com/id/Embarassingly-Easy-Arduino-ProtoShield/
and here http://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-ProtoShield-from-quotHouseholdquot-Ite/
Step 3: Solder the electronics parts
Solder the leds. The “upper” leds must be on the pin 6
Solder the tilt switch and the 10 kohms resistor.
With my tilt switch, I’m using only two pins (see picture)
Add some jumper wire… and finally it should looks like the last picture
