As a beginner to Arduino, I was looking through the servo sweep example when it occurred to me that a servo could be used as a meter.
So I picked up a temperature sensor, combined the examples in the Arduino IDE for the sensor I got and now have a analog looking thermometer. This is a really easy project to get started with the IDE.
This is a very easy, functional project for someone curious about the Arduino world.
These parts are very inexpensive. Cheaper if you buy more than one at a time.
The sensor can also read humidity. I'm working on other versions that do temp, humidity, and barometric pressure. Later.
Remember to come back and post what you've printed as Make.
It's good for the designer and the community (that means you)!
