Finishing Touches on the LEDs
I came to the realization that I shouldn't have soldered the LED strips completely together and should have added connectors at each point. Oops. So I did that and found out that there was a connection/solder problem at the ground header on the circuit board. There was also one connection near the end of the strip where the power wasn't that good, so I fixed that too (I hope). I also discovered that when I turn off the LED on the colour sensor, the readings from it are not good enough to activate the LED strip, so it effectively turns it off too. Now I just need to take out the hot glue gun and attach everything!
