Drinks in a Wine Glass

Description

3 LEDs diffused together with fluff in an upside down wine glass. The user can input in what type of drink they’d like. For example, they can have ‘wine’, a ‘smoothie’, or an ‘abc’ drink which is a mystery drink. The wine glass will fill with an appropriate color for each of the drinks. For the ‘abc’ mystery drink the glass fills with a fading progression through all of the colors.

Components

1 Arduino

3 LED

3 220 Ohm Resistor

1 Breadboard

4 wires

Code

/* 
 * Serial RGB LED
 * ---------------
 * Serial commands control the brightness of R,G,B LEDs 
 *
 * Command structure is "<colorCode><colorVal>", where "colorCode" is
 * one of "r","g",or "b" and "colorVal" is a number 0 to 255.
 * E.g. "r0" turns the red LED off. 
 * "g127" turns the green LED to half brightness
 * "b64" turns the blue LED to 1/4 brightness
