A special edition christmas arduino workshop. We'll be using a new very small arduino clone called ["Trinket"].
We can make a christmas star/tree with sound effects.
Ardillo did some research and collected a list of parts which can be bought for a fair price.
Workshop: Fish_ && Ardillo
The Trinket is one of the cheapest clone (unless you tinker around yourself).
We've made a DIY christmas kit which consists of the following:
|1||trinket 5V Logic||€8,00||[floris.cc-trinket]|
|1||USB - mini USB cable||€2,08||[Farnell-usb cable]|
|1||Piezo buzzer||€1,00||[Farnell-piezo buzzer]|
|1||Light Dependant Resistor||€0,77||[Farnell-LDR]|
|2||high power LED's||€0,60||[Farnell-LED's]|
|?||red/green LED's||€??||Randomdata's own supply|
|?||jumpers/cables/wire||€??||Randomdata's own supply|
|1||splitted shipping costs||€0,56||Farnell & Floris.cc shipping divided by amount of kits|
The url's of Farnell are without tax, our price is with 21% tax.
During the workshop we tell about arduino's and why they are awesome.
The Trinket is a little different but still easy to work with. It is important to know that your trinket is a 5V Logic version (not the 3.3V). This important when connecting your trinket to sensors, they have to be of the same voltage as your trinket.
Adafruit made a good tutorial on how to use this trinket.

So for making a Christmas tree/star with sound effects we made a guidance workshop where you are doing all the work and we are just helping. ...more to come, still work in progress...
