Use the arduino tutorials authored by Limor fried on the Ladyada site to get to know the arduino, the software that you will use to design behaviors, and the leds that are part of your getting started kit.
Refer to the:
- Lession #1, #2, and #3
Using this guide to the arduino and leds, create an eLight light that communicates a "state of being" using the expressive vocabulary of steady light, blinking light and colored light.
Add to this a physical dimension that enhances the experience of this "state of being", making tangible the affective or emotional experience of this eLight.
