Step 3: Testing

For testing this project we made sure the buttons and lights were working using
gator clips attached to the Lillypad first. We made sure each leg was working then
we tested they all worked when connected. Once we were sure we had the code working
well enough we started using the conductive thread and attached a leg at a time.
In the code the serial monitor is activated and will print out the pin value that
has been selected. This allowed us to figure out which leg was shorting when a problem
did arise.

We did run into several issues along the way with shorts here and there.

That's really, really cool!
