Colour Sensor Shoot-Out - Part 3 - TCS34725

Colour Sensor Shoot-Out - Part 3 - TCS34725

Today I'm looking at the TCS34725 sensor by Adafruit, to see how it fares in my colour sensor shoot-out + more!

I've been looking into colour sensors for a particular use case - detection of red, green & blue - for a project I have set myself to complete - based on this awesome video by:

So I decided to do a shoot-out, comparing all of the sensors I can find.

I had a lot of trouble getting this sensor to work reliably and though I make some fair assessments during this video, I am still doing more behind the scenes with it to see if I can improve it's results. 

Let's find out how good this sensor is...
