Hit the gas!

While playing around with my two switches in the step and reset program, I thought it was neat how it would slowly speed up when you hit the step button.  I thought the reset button was a lot lamer, so I thought I’d make the reset button ‘decelerate’ the lights instead of just suddenly making them slow all at once.  This reminded me of accelerating and decelerating – like in a car, so I made my switches look like that.

Switches were pretty easy to make… I just folded up a piece of paper a bunch of times and wrapped both ends in foil.
