Prototype complete

For my Arduino-powered flickering LED project, I finished the prototype with all the features I wanted:

  1. Light sensor to turn the LEDs off after the room lights are turned off.
  2. Button to set the room darkness threshold, since I don???t want to have to reprogram the chip in the future.
  3. Six LEDs with flickering brightness.
  4. One steady LED for a differently shaped balloon, which will be used for the status display as well (blink to indicate setting the threshold, as well as to indicate that it noticed the lights went out).

  1. Hi. I am curious on your code for your flicker sketch with the auto off/on ambient. I also want to add adjustable brightness limiting on mine. I have used your sketch for a couple of my flicker candle desk/table/shelf lamps i make out of old frosted ceiling light fixtures, I must have made the first one in 2010. I am also curious to see some pictures of your finished balloons.
