S100 - The Arduino Stater Kit - Project 12

Knock Lock - This project was fun! I had to trouble shoot the knocking a lot but eventually got the lock mechanism to work. In this project a piezo is used as an input. Depending on the number of knocks the piezo hears it will move the servo to "lock" or "unlock."

I really like the serial monitor, it makes the transition between tech and real easier to understand.

Crystal Ball - These tutorials just keep getting better and better - I loved this one... it's so easy to customize. I also really liked the tilt switch... You just move the switch upside down and a little bearing inside of it activates a change in the switch state. I could see integrating this mechanism into another type of object like the compact mirror seamlessly.

And then the ego took control...............
