## Introduction: Electronic Dice!!!

I made a dice throwing prototype: if you press the button, a random number between 1 and 6 is generated and the corresponding number of LEDs are lit up. This was a holiday project with my kids :)

Dice throwing prototype using Arduino UNO, a button switch and 6 LEDs.

## Step 1: Parts & Materials Required!!!

• Arduino uno
• 6x LED'S
• A breadbord or a prototyping board
• 6x 220 ohm Resistors
• 1x 1k ohm Resistors
• A push button

## Step 2: Circuit Diagram!!!

I have made a circuit diagram for the connections of Arduino,led,push button and resistors.

## Step 3: Connections!!!

Now connect led's negative terminal to the 220ohm resistors and positive terminal to the arduino's digital pins from 2 to 7.and connect the other led of the resistors to the Gnd(ground) pin.

For rest of the connections for push button see the circuit diagram!!

## Step 4: Additional Changes for the Led's!!!

I have added the BRIDGE like structure at the middle of the breadboard for the led's to rest infront of the wires and resistors JUST TO LOOK CLEAN.

U CAN ALSO SKIP THIS PART IF U DO NOT WANT TO DO THIS.

## Step 5: CODE!!

```  //Now hook up your pc with arduino and just download the below code and upload to your arduino.
//Dynamic Innovator// set to 1 if we're debugging
#define DEBUG 0

// 6 consecutive digital pins for the LEDs
int first = 2;
int second = 3;
int third = 4;
int fourth = 5;
int fifth = 6;
int sixth = 7;

// pin for the button switch
int button = 12;
// value to check state of button switch
int pressed = 0;

void setup() {
// set all LED pins to OUTPUT
for (int i=first; i<=sixth; i++) {
pinMode(i, OUTPUT);
}
// set buttin pin to INPUT
pinMode(button, INPUT);

// initialize random seed by noise from analog pin 0 (should be unconnected)

// if we're debugging, connect to serial
#ifdef DEBUG
Serial.begin(9600);
#endif

}

void buildUpTension() {
// light LEDs from left to right and back to build up tension
// while waiting for the dice to be thrown
// left to right
for (int i=first; i<=sixth; i++) {
if (i!=first) {
digitalWrite(i-1, LOW);
}
digitalWrite(i, HIGH);
delay(100);
}
// right to left
for (int i=sixth; i>=first; i--) {
if (i!=sixth) {
digitalWrite(i+1, LOW);
}
digitalWrite(i, HIGH);
delay(100);
}
}

void showNumber(int number) {
digitalWrite(first, HIGH);
if (number >= 2) {
digitalWrite(second, HIGH);
}
if (number >= 3) {
digitalWrite(third, HIGH);
}
if (number >= 4) {
digitalWrite(fourth, HIGH);
}
if (number >= 5) {
digitalWrite(fifth, HIGH);
}
if (number == 6) {
digitalWrite(sixth, HIGH);
}
}

int throwDice() {
// get a random number in the range [1,6]
int randNumber = random(1,7);

#ifdef DEBUG
Serial.println(randNumber);
#endif

return randNumber;
}

void setAllLEDs(int value) {
for (int i=first; i<=sixth; i++) {
digitalWrite(i, value);
}
}

void loop() {
// if button is pressed - throw the dice

if (pressed == HIGH) {
// remove previous number
setAllLEDs(LOW);

buildUpTension();
int thrownNumber = throwDice();
showNumber(thrownNumber);
}

}```
