Lab 2: Digital I/O Using Arduino

The arduino powers one LED when the button is pressed, the other when it is not:

My combination lock interface: A coin operated lock (the 'unlocked' green LED goes on when all three coins are in)

Tinfoil circuit under the hood:

And finally, my dream device:

It is an interface for 3d modeling/digital sculpting. It would plug into the computer, and project a hologram (on top of the tinfoil) that the user (wearing the stylish leather interactive gloves) would be able to sculpt and shape with his hands instead of using a mouse/tablet.

Lab 1: Breadboard and introductory circuits

These are my first experiences with the breadboard, LEDs, a switch, and a potentiometer:

The LED at three levels of brightness thanks to the potentiometer:

Waiting for my beloved laptop to come back from the shop with a new motherboard. Until then, I don't have a computer with an SD card reader to put photos on here!
