Arduino Circular Cylon!

Arduino Circular Cylon (1)

This is a quick arduino project that is great for beginners. Enjoy! There is a video on the last step!

Arduino Circular Cylon (1)

Step 1: What you Need

To build this project you will need:

10 LEDs, any color will do.

Some wire, I used a ribbon cable I had

Most importantly, an Arduino

Perhaps some electrical tape

Prototyping board

Step 2: Build it!

Start off by arranging your LEDs on the proto board however you choose, I chose to place them in an oval shape.Arduino Circular Cylon1 (1)

After that, solder them to the board. After they are soldered, solder all the cathodes (shorter leads, – or the lead that has the flat side) together. Then, solder a wire to each anode (other lead of the LEDs) to a wire.

Step 3: Connect It to the Arduino and Program It!

Wire it up like schematic shows!

After you are done wiring it, you can start programming the arduino. I understand that there are many ways of bumming the code but since this example is for beginners, I made it as simple and understandable as possible.

void setup() {
