DIY Pacduino Workshop, V&A Museum

Create LED light patterns or program your own PACMAN-like game.

This fabulous workshop covers how to use the basic electronic components (switch, potentiometer, resistor, capacitor etc) and introduce how to control a micro-controller, Atmega 168 using the open-source Arduino software.

In this workshop you will create your own lighting patterns, such as texts and images and also develop a simple game, using a bespoke pre-designed led-matrix circuit.
