Controlling Lights with Hand Claps

DC motors

  • With the Microphone library it is possible to detect the number of times one claps their hands.

  • This detection allows us to activate any element of the home display, for example the lighting.

  • The microphone is connected to the analog input A1.

Turtle Library

  • To simulate different lighting levels we can use the screen.

  • We can use the fill display with _ block that we will find in the Turtle library instead of draw rectangle … from the TFT library.
