LED Skateboard Rubiks Cube

This project uses LED lights controlled by an accelerometer and gyroscope to challenge your skateboarding creativity. The LED lights change according to what trick is being performed. For example, a shuvit (180-degree yaw rotation) changes the lights blue. a kickflip (360-degree roll) changes the color to red. when both tricks are done simultaneously (varial flip) …
