PiHut’s Maker Advent Calendar – Day Nine Project

Another day, another project to dip in to. In day nine’s box was a ball tilt switch which, as the name implies, has a ball bearing in it that when rolled to the botton completes the circuit sending a notification to the Pico. You can imagine using this in a number of scenarios such as detecting when an object has been lifted.

Watch today’s video to see how it works:

This one was incredibly simple to wire up and in use which is what we like.
