Creating a glowing logo with Arduino

Glowing Logo Arduino
By Lloyd Summers on 25 May 2014 01:58 pm

In this weeks exciting Arduino tutorial, I will walk you through everything you need to know in order to get started with blinky lights and an Arduino! In case you missed it last week, new Arduino DIY'ers may find it helpful to read the Getting Started with Arduino article.

In this weeks edition, we cover:

  • Getting familiar with the pins on the Arduino
  • Writing your own Arduino code
  • How resistors work
  • How to use single and multi-colour blinky lights
  • and finally the steps to creating your own glowing logo!

And if that isn't enough, you may find a nice surprise addition at the bottom for more advanced users.

So connect your Arduino, grab your components, and get ready to make your own mini light show!

This is cool. I'll add this concept up in my Logic Circuits course project.

This is really neat. I'll add this to the long list of things that I'd like to do when I never get around to learning how to use an Arduino.

I can't want to be able to build something in the coming months. And the logo tip is awesome!

Damn what I wouldn't give to have an office full of tech to play with. cuts to daydream: plays with cool tech all day goes home realises there's an article to wright, stays up all night to get it done. Only to face another helish day at the office playing with tech.

That makes two of us :). By day I'm a project manager in oil and gas. In the evenings I write mobile apps and games. And on weekends I mess with Arduino / Pi / etc. Most people, except my wife, are sure I'm crazy.
