Hello, and welcome to my Instructable for Light Me Up! Box.
The "Light Me Up! Box" is a project I made for school. I came up with this idea because I was browsing the interwebs and I came across some original, funny looking packaging designs online.
Here's what you'll need:
- Arduino Uno
- A breadboard
- A box
- LED lights
- A touch sensor
Step 1: My Arduino Setup
This was the setup I used for my project. I used the program: Fritzing.
Step 2: Setting Up the Code
This is the code I've used for this project. What it does is that the LED's will light up depending on how hard you press the sensor.
Step 3: Time to Make Your Box!
1 - Poke some holes for your LED lights
2 - Make sure they're visible enough
3 - Put your Arduino inside the box, make sure your Touch Sensor sticks out of the box
4 - Cut a hole for the USB port
5 - Paint your box however you like
And you're done!
