Well I thought I’d better try out the PicKit 2. It is installed, building, programming and working. I haven’t done anything more than that but one of the demos has given me an idea for a school game. That is; we have school fairs occasionally and they have the usual buzzer wire type games. I might build a simple 2×8 LED/Light box with a wheel (connected to Potentiometer). Basically the game will move a red light left and right, and the player has to turn the wheel to keep a green light in line with the red line. The speed at which the red light moves can be varied. I’d probably have to put in a timer too and maybe some sounds like an engine!
Hmm, this project is getting bigger!
