This is a product to which I came to craft in my Digital Multimedia class. This project was to a point to be a solution to a long standing problem for me. This problem, is that when on a computer I use sound proof headphones and had the tendency to accidentally ignore my surroundings. So, with this project LED frame hanging above my computer screen when my door is knocked on or when people start talking behind me, the LED frame starts to flicker informing me that I need to be paying attention.
I understand that I am quite the novice when it comes to working with electronics. However, I will provide all the information I can to give an understanding of how I came to make this project. I will also point out issues that when I came down to finishing was not satisfied with and would change up when I decide to redo the project.
Note: If you find any problems throughout the Steps, being that either grammar, pictures, wording, etc, please feel free to inform me and I will fix the issues as I return to make adjustments.
