Hello, I'm still a beginner in Arduino and electronics. :slightly_smiling_face:
I will power my Arduino with 12V, 15W, 1.25A.
I would like to know how to make an hardware switch (3 positions) that I could manually push in order to have three functioning mode in my Arduino program. Is this possible? With which electronic component would you suggest it? And how would the wiring look like between the switch and the Arduino?
Thanks for your help!
You want to MAKE a switch? Don't know why, but I can tell you what I did to my dad when I was around 5 or 6...
I took two pieces of aluminum foil, separated them with a thin piece of wax and connected the "switch" to a cassette tape recorder with a long, hideous scream recorded.
I placed the "switch" between the toilet bowl and the seat (under one of the "bumper balls" or whatever they're called) so that when my dad sat down, the small contact area of the ball squeezed out the wax and made contact, turning on the tape recorder.
My dad sat down, a hideous scream blasted from the tape recorder and, needless to say, my dad had no problem "filling the bowl" that day! LOL!!!
(I also got rapped upside the head for it, but it was worth it!) LOL!!!!!
