190317 - Voltage Divider > Sensor to control LEDs

The player underneath has 2 videos:

They show the tests of the bend sensor affecting the red led.

The first video uses a Flora board by adafruit.

In the second one, I am testing the ATtiny85 which ended up being the chosen microcontroller.


The sketchbook notes shows how the Voltage Divider works.

It ables me to turn the ohm changes from the sensor into voltage for analog reading by the microcontroller.
