The slide dimmer functions just like a light dimmer you might find at home, or a volume fader in a recording studio. You control the slide dimmer Bit by moving its lever from one end of the Bit to the other. Follow it with an LED for some adjustable mood lighting.

Slide this dimmer back and forth to control your circuit. As you slide it up, more signal goes to the Bits that follow, brightening lights, speeding up motors, and raising the volume on buzzers. This Bit is great when you want more than just ON or OFF control of your Bits.
