Because I was able to control the speed of the light display with my toggle switched, I thought it would be fun to make the light display play to the rhythm of a song. As a result, it would almost be like a real lightshow. I did this by recording the light display, controlling the speed with the toggles, and placing the song over the video using iMovie (I didn't want to play the music out loud and disturb my fellow computer scientists around me!) I put the song Bohemian Rhapsody on top of the light display. The video was too long to post here so it will be on my folder.  Please watch the whole thing (smile)

Conclusion:

One of the main lessons I've learned in this project was how to create circuits without using a Block Diagram/Schematic File. It was much simpler writing the circuit in VHD and less tedious. It would have been very time consuming to create the circuit. In addition, I gained a better understanding of ALUs and how opcodes are used to carry out various instructions. This project was very fun and creative!
