Temperature Program

The MSP340 comes with a program on the board out of the box. It makes a red LED go brighter as the temperature gets hotter. I simply used my thumb to create some heat through friction. You can't really see it in the video since I couldn't get my camera into focus, but the LED gets brighter as I keep rubbing. Takes it a while to get warm enough to register though

  3. @Aaron, not quite sure, don't intend to push it either to find out! I only got 2 of these things and I'm sure I'm gonna break one through other means somehow

  4. haha, that's pretty neat. Getting 2 is a good idea, I think... sometimes you learn more when you break stuff. =D
