With Instructables you can share what you make with the world, and tap into an ever-growing community of creative experts.
You should learn to use interrupts (and use a sensor that can generate them, if the color sensor can't). (The color sensor itself is overkill, too. A couple of switches with appropriate debouncing, or infrared slot sensors such as are used in printers, would work just as well and probably be more reliable.) That way, even if the Arduino is doing something else, it will not miss the signal.
It being a crime depends on the jurisdiction, though it's harmful to the environment either way. I thought modern fridges used non-CFC refrigerants, though. Air conditioners and the like do, at least.Also, I don't know why I would need large volumes of hair…
What's the difference between a bike light app and a flashlight app or built-in flashlight function?
You shouldn't put LEDs directly in parallel like that, sharing one resistor, especially in something you're selling as a product, and especially in something that may be exposed to extremes of temperature, or light/shadows falling on some of the LEDs but not the others. LEDs will always have slightly different forward voltage drops, and whichever one has the lowest will pass the greatest current. This, combined with or partially caused by the environmental factors I mentioned, will cause that LED to wear out more quickly, accelerating the degradation. Eventually that one will burn out, and the one resistor will then be too small for the remaining LEDs, which will then burn out in succession. Instead, give each LED its own resistor, or put all of the LEDs in series (which obviously makes...see more »You shouldn't put LEDs directly in parallel like that, sharing one resistor, especially in something you're selling as a product, and especially in something that may be exposed to extremes of temperature, or light/shadows falling on some of the LEDs but not the others.

The intent is that the plastic (combusted with air or another oxidizer supplied through the hose) will produce the thrust, and the butane/naphtha/sawdust is just to help ignite it. So far we haven't managed to ignite it successfully, so I don't know if it actually does produce significant thrust.
Over the past few hours, while writing my instructable 3D Printed PLA Hybrid Rocket With 3D Printed PLA Fuel, I was able to use the in-editor image uploader with no trouble. I have not retried the two library uploaders.

Oh, and the new uploader tells me how to select multiple files, but if I do so, it then tells me I can only give it one file at a time.
I am having the same problem. Windows 7 Enterprise x64, Chrome and Firefox. Neither uploader works. The old uploader just spins forever and nothing gets uploaded. The new uploader says every photo failed with "Server (IO) error". I have checked to make sure I'm not blocking anything that could be required for this.
