P35 & P36: Build an LED torch and electronic game

Figure 1 and Figure 2 show both pins of the resistor(s) connected to the same row on the breadboard. This overrides the resistor, drawing the full 3.3V to the LED from the GPIO pins on the Raspberry Pi. Although unlikely, it could damage the pins on your Raspberry Pi.
