Build a game that will put your reflexes and your understanding of C++ to the test. You’ll continue to expand your knowledge of circuits and programming by first assembling your hardware, learning about input pins. Then, you’ll move into the programming portion of this Reflex Game project kit, where you’ll learn about a tool to condense the code called functions and how to write them into your code. After you’ve finished your game and challenged a friend to see who can react faster to the LED lighting up you’ll figure out how to make the LEDs blink faster, modify the program and your hardware to use pullup resistors instead of pulldown resistors, and create a function to initiate the countdown. Do you have the fastest fingers?
