Arduino COLOR sensor TCS230 / TCS2300

Hello world! Today i made a Arduino COLOR sensor/ Recognizer with arduino and the TCS2300 /TCS230 color sensor. It simply reads the values of the Sensor and prints it to the serial monitor, this sensor can be used for a Color sorting machine for example. The code is very small. We are using a library which makes the values pretty accurate. Follow the next link for the Schematic code and parts list.

NOTE: It also detects other colors then RGB. Only i seen yellow is not very accurate.

Schematic:
Arduino COLOR sensor
Just wire it up like the schematic, See below how to wire it up if you cannot read the schematic.
The text on the schematic is a bit unreadable for some i can imagine.
vcc > 5v
GND > GND
SO > D3
S1 > D4
S2 > D5
S3 > D6
OUT > D2

Parts list:
Arduino uno.
Color sensor TCS2300 / TCS230 (soon for sale on my site)
Jumper wire set.

Good luck! Download the Library here: TCS3200.zip
