I’ve uploaded the arduino programme which runs the zoetrope strobe to the dropbox account, in case anyone wants to try to get the strobe going before Monday. It is (in theory) easy to download the arduino software from the internet, then follow set up instructions (also on internet). Once you have arduino up and running follow these steps
– plug the lights into the electronics board following instructions on wires. DO NOT PLUG LIGHTS INTO ELECTRICITY YET.
– plug the arduino board into your computer. Light should come on on the board
– open strobe programme.
– upload strobe programme to board. You should see lights flashing on the board
– plug lights into electricty. It should start in a few seconds.
Just unplug to stop.
Phone me if you have any questions…
