For our second class assignment, we were asked to create a simple application of switch and LED circuit.
Below is my pushup switch:
After moving to Manhattan, I've been feeling the roughness that the city can exhibit. With this in mind, I feel like it's important to take my personal safety into my own hands. Strength building is something that I haven't been great with in the past, but it's never too late... right?
I decided to create a circuit that is only closed when an proper full pushup is completed. When my nose, wrapped in conductive copper tape, touches the aluminum-covered pad, the green LED lights up to indicate a complete circuit and perfect pushup.
- copper tape
- black jumper wires
- alligator clip jump wire
- Arduino Uno
- Breadboard with 220 Ohm resistor, green LED, and alligator clip jump wires
- wooden platform with aluminum-wrapped landing pad and alligator clip jump wire
