Hello,

would it be possible to use a Solarpanel as a replacement for a poti?
Right i use to control  the        pitch and volume with some potentiometers
and would like to replace some of them with a solarpanel.

anyone tried that, would my arduino go with this?


thnx

You mean "LDRs or Light Dependent Resistors"?
Solar Panel is good to power up things, only if small one, but still bigger in size compare to LDR
and slower on response.

uh, im not really an tech person.

the idea is to control the sound by light/laserpointer instead of turning a potentiometer knob.
