: Add code to arduino Bit
The Arduino reads the analog voltage from the pressure sensor, and lights up the RGB LEDs depending on how high the voltage is.
: Assemble circuit
Attach three RBG LEDs to the output ends of the arduino. Adjust the color of the LEDs using a littleBits screwdriver. I set it to blue for Naive, pink for Puppy Love & red for Infatuated.
: Add input
I used a pressure sensor as the input for this project, but you can try using another Bit. Maybe a temperature sensor to measure how hot you are :) Connect a wire to the input end of the arduino to connect the pressure sensor. Use another wire to connect the power Bit.
: Build housing for the circuit
I found this cardboard box in the mailroom of our office. It’s a pretty simple design, but it reminded me of an arcade machine. I added a front facade, punched holes to reveal the LEDs.
: Add circuit to housing
I used tape to attach the arduino & RGB LEDs to the back of the machine. I then cut a slit and fed the pressure sensor through the facade.
: Decorate housing
I used white & red spray paint & printed out the lettering & emoji.
: Test your love!
How much ~feels~ do you have? It's pretty easy to get infatuated. But hey, that's love!
