For the first time, I set up my circuit based on the diagram and not the guide, with mixed results.

I’m working my way through the Arduino Starter Kit and having a blast doing it. This is the most fun, wholesome use of 70 bucks ever for me!

Project 06 has us building a Light Theremin, basically a “musical instrument” that will use a phototransistor to detect the amount of light that is available, then report that change to a device that plays a tone, informing it when to change the tone to play. The piece playing the tone is known as a piezo.

Calibrating sensors

This seems like it would be an important thing for future projects, glad to have learned…
