This instructable will show you how to make an electronic dice with minimal experience using 7 LEDs, resistors, jumper wires, and of course the arduino (or arduino clone). I wrote this instructable for anyone to easily follow along and learn more about the arduino. Questions are welcome and will be answered as soon as possible. For less experienced users the code for the arduino is in “longhand” and several comments are included for better understanding of the code being uploaded into the arduino.
Step 1: Parts list
Arduino or a clone ( I’m using a protoshield but a breadboard will work the same way)
11 Jumper Wires (or stripped wires in order to make connections on a breadboard)
7 Resistors (I used 330ohms) (ORANGE)(ORANGE)(BROWN)(GOLD)
7 LEDs ( I used green)
1 tactile switch or motions sensor (I used a motion sensor)
Step 2: Jumper Setup
In this step you will need to plug in 7 of the 11 wires. Jumper will be placed in digital plugs 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 10; the other sides will be placed in the breadboard as shown below.
