New Concept: Conditions, conditions
When your program’s action is based on a condition as simple as ‘pressCount’, you can see how you can quickly build a complex program with very few inputs. This project is similar to the ‘Space Headlights’ project, but it takes the idea further about how many pressCounts you can have. When your button input increases the value of a variable, there’s almost no limit to how many different outcomes you could have. You could even have a special number of presses that triggers a ‘secret’ reaction.
