Hello, I have been researching for hours tilt sensors and this is what I need. I want to put some LEDs on my hat on the left and on the right so that when i tilt my head, the LEDs come on depending on which side i tilt my head. Would i need two sensors for my idea? I want to use about 8 to 10 LEDS to form a V shape on each side, can you give me some tips please and information on your tilt sensors. can i use them without an Arduino and if i use an Arduino what would be the difference or benefit? Thank You Gladys

    Hi Gladys, The tilt sensors are basically switches that turn on when they are tilted. The problem with using them as you are looking to is that they can't tell which way they are being tilted so if you had one on each side they would both turn on regardless of the way you tilted the hat. An Arduino is a little microprocessor that can be programmed to read many inputs and operate several outputs. You can program it with something like "if tilt sensor is tilted turn LEDs 1,2 and 3 on for 5 seconds then LEDs 4,6 and 6" or much more complex things if you have more sensors and outputs.
