Arduino Advent Calendar Day 11 - Tilt Switch!
Today we're going to use a tilt switch/sensor to measure whether you're still upright.
In hindsight we should have done this circuit after the Alcohol Sensor circuit!
What is a Tilt Switch?
A Tilt Switch is a very simple sensor that uses two conductive steel balls to complete a circuit.
When the sensor is tilted, the balls no longer complete and close the circuit.
Enough talking about it let's go and build up the circuit over at guides.littlebird.com.au .
We're happy to help!
