LEDs are found everywhere these days. These colorful lights seem to offer so many you may wonder where to begin using them. This booklet presents more than twenty exciting projects covering LEDs, aimed at young & old. From an Air Writer, a Party Light, Running Lights, a LED Fader right up to a Christmas Tree.
Use this book to replicate various projects and then put them into practice. To give you a head start each project is supported by a brief explanation, schematics and photos. In addition, the free support page on the Elektor website has a few inspiring video links available that elaborate on the projects.
A couple of projects employ the popular Arduino microcontroller board that’s graced by a galaxy of open source applications.
The optional 60-piece Starter Kit available with this book is a great way to get circuits built up and tested on a breadboard, i.e. without soldering.
