Light Box

My idea for the project was to create a night light that an user can simply change between various modes by turing the top of the nightlight box. I was able to achieve this design by placing a potentiometer in the middle of the light box.

I looked at the Nighlight class code as a reference and wrote my own custom code for the project.

I looked up how to wire a RGB LED.

I also looked up the function for boolean algebra to write the code for RGB color fading animation.

I laser cut the pieces and super glued them together. The middle of the light box had a hollow, which I purposely left out to place a potentiometer and connect all the wires. Finally, I soldered and hot glued most of the wires in the light box to improve the strength of the wire connections.
