Sensor walk

March 23, 2010

I went to do some errands and realized how many sensors I react with daily. Just to get out of the garage I had to press a button to open the door. At the crosswalk, there was a sign ‘push button for green’ (which I’m still not sure does anything). At the drugstore, I went through the automatic sliding doors and paid for my things using a machine at checkout. Now off to the cash machine.

Christmas in March!

It’s 1:00 in the morning and I wasn’t able to figure out how to make the LED’s turn on one at a time with a force sensor. Still, I managed to get the LED’s to alternate with the touch of my finger. I’ve come a long way but still have a way to go. Merry Christmas!
