Many of us have found ourselves with old technology which we'd want to breathe life back into again. In this case we have an old VU meter, essentially a volume indicator, which we're trying to get moving again. It's a fairly easy process, using a little bit of soldering and programming.

Materials

Arduino board, in this case the Arduino UNO
Breadboard
Two 10kOhm potentiometers
18kOhm resistor
Zener diode


Tools

Soldering iron
