Reprogramming Simon Tilts
Your Simon Tilts game is re-programmable with Arduino. This means that you can change the rules of the game, add more features, or turn it into a completely different project. For more information about how to re-program using Arduino, check out these tutorials tutorial:
What is an Arduino?
If you're interested to learn more about writing code, a good place to start is by completing the example circuits in the SparkFun Inventors Kit.
The microcontroller included with your Simon Tilts is actually re-programable with Arduino. This is the same microcontroller that is used in the RedBoard SIK. This means that if you wanted to, you could use the skills learned in the SIK to modify your Simon Tilts. For example, you could change the way the game plays or use it for an entirely different project!
