It occurred to Larry that in the great outdoors of the Grove, there weren’t streetlights that came on when it was dark. And if he was going to be trekking in the woods for mot of the day, there was a strong possibility that he’d be stomping around in the dark when evening came… and he was NOT a fan of the dark (see Makersuit Larry in micro:bits First Steps). But he didn’t want to spend his afternoon sitting in camp waiting for nightfall.
Was there a way to have a light to come on as it got dark? That way, it would also become a marker for him to follow back to camp.
- Add a buzzer module to alert user of the impending night fall
- Experiment using the LED grid for additional illumination too
