Hi all,

I'm looking to create a very simple project as follows:

Using a VB NET project I want to switch on/off some leds.
I want the possibility of red, green or none.
Needs to be visible 5m across a normal office space.
Should have 360 degree visibility

I have a UNO board here but have no idea how to progress.. I don't really want to have to learn a lot about the technology, I just want to get the project working.

Thanks in advance.

What part of this are you having issues with?

This is a matter of proper LED selection and positioning.

That attitude is not going to get you very far.

Hello

Well I really don't know where to start - even where to attach the LEDs.

I realise I was a bit blunt but isn't it best to be honest? I'm just looking for some help to get me going without having to understand everything...

If you don't build some foundations by learning the basics, then you're always going to be coming back for more help.
