Arduino Advent Calendar Day 11 - Tilt Switch!

Today we're going to use a tilt switch/sensor to measure whether you're still upright.
In hindsight we should have done this circuit after the Alcohol Sensor circuit!

What is a Tilt Switch? 

A Tilt Switch is a very simple sensor that uses two conductive steel balls to complete a circuit. 



When the sensor is tilted, the balls no longer complete and close the circuit. 



Enough talking about it let's go and build up the circuit over at guides.littlebird.com.au .
