Projects and Guides

Reaction Test Game

Challenge you and your friends' reaction speed with this intuitive and easy-to-build game.

Utilizing a simple button, an LED light, and a computer, you can program your Pico to measure how swiftly the button is pressed following the LED illuminating - and the timing is random so no cheating!

Ohms Lawohms-law-guide-showcase-image

We walk through best practices for making sure your LED does not burn out, by limiting the current.

Learn about one of the most used formulas in Electronics: Ohms Law.

 

Pico Online Workshop

 

In the Digital IO section of the workshop we walk through different ways to control an LED, starting with on and off using the Pin function through to fading it in and out with a PWM signal and a for loop.
