When you think of motors, you’ll likely think of the motor…car! In this project, we’ll make a fun cardboard car, and say “stick” a lot.
LED lights look great from behind light-diffusing materials. Make a simple lightbox, powered by a micro:bit and an LED strip.
In this project, we’ll create our very own lightsaber. The LED strips form the blade, and will light up whenever we swing the lightsaber! Unfortunately, you have to provide your own “PSHHHEWWW” and“WOOMM WOOMM” sound effects.
Snap the dot
Create a simple game using an LED strip, functions, and state variables. One LED will light up blue, and a red dot will bounce back and forth. Stop the red dot when it lands on the blue dot!
Bling Blink Bracelet
The flexible LED strip can transform into a colourful light bracelet when worn on the wrist. Bring it to your next dance party (or work meeting), and gesticulate wildly for some awesome flashing lights!
We’re going to build a simple version of timing gates which are sensors used on some roads to determine how fast cars are travelling.
Steal Me Not
Let’s use touch sensing to create an alarm for a container! You can use this to secure your favourite snacks from your household pet. Or small child.
