I have been playing with Bittle now that I got him working and I really want to give him LED eyes of some sort. I have some 5 mm LEDs in red, yellow, and blue from an ATMega kit and was wondering if something like that would be the right specs for them. I do have some extra wires from the kit too so I could wire it through the head and onto the board. I just want to make sure that it would be safe to add such lights made to be used with arduino kits before I go ahead and do it. I have the resistors that came with the same kit too but not sure which ones I would use.
I want to have them in the head not on the board itself so the bot looks like it has glowing eyes. I am able to run the ones I have off the GND and 5V pins on the front of the board. Now I just need to solder the parts together to wire them through the head when the bot powers on.
Well, if you just want the lights, there are SEVEN RGB LEDs right on the NyBoard V1! The demo code is available on GitHub:
The ones I have with the kit are 237 Ohms so those should work. Thank you! I just want to have the lights running all the time when the bot powers on so would it be ok to solder the wires to the top of the boards where the pos and neg battery terminals are? I am just doing a breadboard setup right now to make sure it works and I was able to light them.
Hi, you may use the LED with a resister connected in serial. It can be 200~2000 Ohms.
