Making it rain with Arduino


We love it when our customers share their projects! This example by Todd Moore uses an Arduino and a LoL Shield to make a simulated rain pattern on the display. Not bad for a first Arduino project! Thanks for sharing Todd.

Building and coding the Arduino Lol Shield has been a lot of fun. My next goal will be to create a game of some kind. I know others have created Pong and Space Invaders. I’d like to come up with something different. Any ideas?

Did you build something with a kit from the Maker Shed? If so, leave a comment below or Twitter a link to @makershed. We always enjoy seeing what everyone is making. Thanks!


The Maker Shed is brought to you by Maker Media, the makers of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Faire, and much more.

Launched originally as a source for back issues of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Shed expanded rapidly to meet the demand for 'projects in a box,' otherwise known as kits. Now we have a little bit of everything for makers, crafters, and budding scientists, from Arduinos to sock monkeys to chemistry sets .
