Project #1–Super-Simple Adjustable Strobe
Stop time like a super-hero with the Super-Simple Adjustable Strobe project! OK, not really, but it will let you see things that move really fast like fans and water droplets. By flashing a light really quickly, stuff that happens too fast to see looks like it slows down or stops. This really cool illusion is pretty useful too.
Ready to make one and learn some cool science? Check out the directions in the book!
Looking for the code? Copy and paste the following into your Arduino IDE, hook up your LED, potentiometer (if you have one) & Arduino, press upload and try it out!
Once your Arduino is programmed, your strobe will start flashing and you can point the light at something that rotates like a desk fan.
