Blinky Blockhead (beginner Arduino Project)

Introduction: Blinky Blockhead (beginner Arduino Project)

About: I'm a high school student who loves making and hacking stuff!

This is just a fun little addition to your desk.

Thanks to my sister for making the paper cube and hair!

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies.

Step 2: Draw a Rectangle That Is 2 1/2 X 10"

Step 3: Draw Lines That Are 2 1/2 Apart.

Step 4: Draw 2 More Squares and Add Tabs Where Indicated.

Step 5: Cut It Out.

Step 6: Glue It Together.

Step 7: Cut a Long Strip of Paper and Cut Slits in It.

Step 8: Glue the Hair on Top of the Head.

Step 9: Cut a Slot in the Back of the Head. (Ignore the Face, We Made a Mistake)

Step 10: Put the LED in Pin 13, Then Install the Board in the Paper Box.

Step 11: Upload This to Your Arduino.


Blink Turns on an LED on for one second, then off for one second, repeatedly. This example code is in the public domain. */ // Pin 13 has an LED connected on most Arduino boards. // give it a name: int led = 13;

// the setup routine runs once when you press reset: void setup() { // initialize the digital pin as an output. pinMode(led, OUTPUT); }

// the loop routine runs over and over again forever: void loop() { digitalWrite(led, HIGH); // turn the LED on (HIGH is the voltage level) delay(1000); // wait for a second digitalWrite(led, LOW); // turn the LED off by making the voltage LOW delay(1000); // wait for a second }

Step 12: Enjoy Your Blinkey Blockhead!
