(PART II: Blinking Birthday)


1)     Use your Arduino’s built in LED (usually pin 13) to blink your birthday.

a.      You can blink the numbers directly or use something like Morse code. 

b.      Include month, day, and year with some method to distinguish each. (A short pause would work).

c.      Have the message repeat at least 10 times with some method to distinguish each repeat.  (A long pause would work).

d.      If your Arduino does not have a built in LED, then use an external LED connected to one of the analog outputs through a resistor.

2)     Turn in the ino-file and a short description of what you did in PDF.
