I hope this is the right place to do it, if not, let me know.
I just wanted to say thanks to Adafruit, the community and surrounding Arduino enthusiasts for a really fun learning experience over the last few days. I have been working on modding the Flora Brakelight backpack concept for the past couple of days. This is my first real experience with Arduino at all. The Adafruit tutorials and documentation have been invaluable.
I am looking forward to getting some of my students involved with Arduino soon.
For me, having a goal and needing to rewrite a lot of the code to work for my implementation was vital.
I have yet to really dive into the accelerometer aspect of things. It isn't exactly doing what I expected right now.
Here's some pics of my prototyping . . .
And a video of what I have up and running so far.
If you want a look at my code . . . constructive feedback is always welcome!
