Heads up... You've reached locked video content where the transcript will be shown as obfuscated text.

In this video, you will be changing the positions stored in the positions list. This will be done with the following considerations in mind.

void draw() async {
  ...
  
  // Add this
  for (int i = positions.length - 1; i > 0; i--) {
    positions[i] = positions[i - 1];
  }
}
positions[0] = getNextPosition(positions[0]);
Offset getNextPosition(Offset position) {}
Offset getNextPosition(Offset position) {
    Offset nextPosition;

    if (direction == Direction.right) {
      nextPosition = Offset(position.dx + step, position.dy);
    } else if (direction == Direction.left) {
      nextPosition = Offset(position.dx - step, position.dy);
    } else if (direction == Direction.up) {
      nextPosition = Offset(position.dx, position.dy - step);
    } else if (direction == Direction.down) {
      nextPosition = Offset(position.dx, position.dy + step);
    }

    return nextPosition;
  }
