How To Make It


RGB and Light sensor Place the RGB and Light Sensor bit as seen in the picture. Rotate them so that they keep together ( magnets are attracting each other ) Take measurements and cut out a cardboard light shield. Keep it a bit loose so you can easily move the bits inside the cardboard. With a bit of glue you can keep the cardboard box together, take time to let dry.


Adjustments Adjust the 3 colors of the RGB module at MAX. Set the switch of the Light sensor to dark
