Orientation Switch

For my circuit, I decided to use the tilt sensor included in the Arduino starter kit as my hands-free switch. The tilt sensor is a hollow cylinder with a metal ball inside that makes a connection across two leads when tilted in the proper direction. The switch is closed when the circuit is lying flat and opened when the circuit is tilted.
