The 8-ball has transformed into the unimaginable. With the same concept as this famed icon, I have created a device that will help you get dressed for the day by giving you a complete outfit with a simple shake of the cube. With modification, the possibilities for this project are endless. By simply changing phrases and other sets of code, this could become anything YOU want it to be.

Step 1: What you need


Step 2: LCD prep

Look at the lcd screen for reference. Solder headers to the first 6 and last 6 pins on the lcd as shown. Attach hookup wire (the yellow wire) to the headers. Since both ends of this hookup wire have female connections, I cut the wires in half and soldered and shrink-wrapped regular hookup wire to the other end.

Step 3: LCD hookup

I closely followed this image from alecnotalex on Instructables for my lcd hookup. Follow the hookup wires from the lcd to the potentiometer to the Arduino as followed, ignoring everything else on the board as this was an older project example from alecnotalex.

NOTE: Since you used hookup wire from the lcd itself as opposed to hooking up the lcd directly to the board, just attach the wire from the lcd to where you see the lcd attached in the image.

That's awesome and full of opportunities for adaptation. Great job, and kudos to you for making something fun from alecnotalex's code.
