We were introduced to the speaker and the audio amplifier in the Tune Player project. The light sensor makes its debut in this project, referred to as the LDR. The program for this experiment is similar to the previous project but with the appropriate corrections to allow for the light sensors to control the pitch and volume.
As you can see in the video, the right light sensor controls the pitch very well, but the sensor on the left does nothing. I wasn't so what the light sensor on the left was rated for but after looking at the package, I'm pretty sure it's a UV sensor. It's times like these that make me wish I had little electronics stash with tons of sensors and such. Sadly, at the moment, that is cost-prohibitive. Someone (me) needs to hurry up and graduate so he can get an adult job.
