Arduino Toy with LED indicator; LED, off, no use for 1hr; LED, fades in/out, after 20min; BLinks to button Answered
Sorry about the question title. Long time listener first time caller.
I'm developing a toy for my nephew. He's really into lit objects.
So I'm trying to write this code in arduino for a basic toy. My nephew doesn't talk much and I thought maybe this would be a great way of him telling us how he feels. So I'm thinking of creating a basic LED-based indicator. I was going to connect 3 buttons to LEDS: red, yellow, and green.
Dependent on how he feels, he would press the buttons. But due to being a kid, his attention span is very short. To keep him engaged I was thinking about adapting the "screensaver mode" and having the toy use minimal batt power and pulse peacefully in and out.
IF he's not around, i just wanted it to turn off by itself. Then any one of the buttons would be a failsafe to turn it back on again.
I'm new to arduino and would love to hear of any suggestions, recommendations, hatemail, chain letters, anything that would elucidate coding.
I would really appreciate it. Thank you so much.
