Simon Says

You all know the game Simon Says, right? The game where you have to copy whatever the “Simon” or leader is doing. Well, this time, it’s all going in the electronics. Two weeks ago, I went to the Maker Faire in San Mateo, CA and did a workshop on one of the Sparkfun™ kits. It was called Simon Says.

The Simon Says Kit comes with :

  • 1x ATmega328 – pre-programmed with Simon firmware (this is a hardware not software project)
  • 1x Buzzer
  • Featured image2x 0.1μF Cap
  • 1x 10K Resistor
  • 4x LEDs (blue, yellow, red, green)
  • 2x Slide Switch
  • 4x Battery Clips
  • 2x AA Batteries
  • 1x Button pad
  • 1x Bezel
  • 4x Standoffs and screws
  • 1x Assembly instructions (you will also need a soldering iron and soldering wire for this project)

It took me about 1 hour and 30 minutes to solder the kit. Very fun project, I reckon!
