This week I have introduced a analog output (tric-oloured LED) and photoresistors (changes its resistance depending on the amount of light that hits them.)
Using a tri-coloured LED and three photoresistors, I’ll create something that will change colour smoothly depending upon external lighting conditions.
This project didn’t quite turn out as I expected, although it worked as it was supposed to (colours fade in and out depending on external light conditions) I thought the change would be very obvious and it was not. The colour green was non-existent and the dominating colour never disappeared. I know that the sensors were work as the serial monitor displayed the changing values as my hands moved across.
