Finch Security

Targeted Concept(s): 
Supported Language(s): 

Program Name:
Objective: Using the if-else and looping.

Use the Finch as its own security system. Place the Finch in front of a door. Using the object sensors while the door is shut just blink a red led but if the door is open (obstacle gone) then the Finch will go crazy with light, sounds and movements.

Put this under Finch Init: boolean[] sense = new boolean[2];
Finch Sense: sense = myFinch.getObstacleSensors();
If the door is opened: if(!(sense[0] || sense[1])) {
Break out of infinite loop: break;
If/else if/else: if(condition) {
} else {
While Loop: while(condition) {

It was funny watching it go
