So here are a few images of a the prototype i produced before the PLAY crit. It looks extremely rough with all the wires, i found it very difficult to follow where each wire belongs even after colour coding and numbering wires. In this example buttons are placed on the back of the object and once pressed they light up and the corresponding section on the front as well.
Lessons to learn from this prototype is, to remove all excess wiring, and to eventually get a PCB board in. Brighter LED's is also going to be a focus for the future.
