1.What did you find difficult about building your project?

I have not been able to get the code working past stage one ( see video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZf3PwnD0ew ). I have worked for hours and hours and all I seem to be able to do is break my project completely and have to start all over again. It is extremely frustrating.

2.What did you find easy about building your project?

I had a lot of fun thinking about the design of the enclosure. I wanted to adhere the LEDs to the leaves of a fake house plant, and then have pressure sensor pads in color-coordinated roots. However, since I haven’t been able to get the code working at all, I don’t feel like I have the time to put together a well-crafted object.

3. What surprises found you while building your project?

Getting stuck on this extremely frustrating technical block has really sapped any motivation I had for this project. I feel like I finally have a clear vision of what I want the object to be, but am unable to make any progress whatsoever. I’m giving up on it. I don’t know, I’m sorry but I tried really hard and am at my breaking point with this. I’ll do something better for the final, I feel like putting more effort into this would be pointless.
