Dear Arduino community,
I am really new to Arduino, but I am planning to use it for experimental purposes.
What I would like to know is if what I want to do is feasible, and maybe get some suggestions on how to do it. I already looked at different tutorials, but still, I am not completely sure.
In the experiment I am planning, a transparent sphere/ball (5cm diameter) is on the table. A LED is in it, and when the LED turns to a specific color the participant has to perform a task, i.e. touch the sphere and lift it of 1cm (more or less).
I am designing now the sphere with the specificities I would need. But what about the LED, how can I put it into such a small sphere? What equipment also?
Furthermore, I hope it is possible to program with Python when to turn the LED on and to what color, but this should be feasible.
One more thing: the sphere will be more or less at 50cm from the participant. So the LED(s) has to be quite strong be visible at such a distance, in a room what will NOT be dark.
I hope you can help me
