    IR sensor + Arduino + Winbond 

    IR sensor + Arduino + Winbond from maze on Vimeo.

    I did not change the code I used in my last mini project(IR sensor+ 3 color LEDs) and simply integrated that project with my recorder project(recorder-volume control+fwd). So when the red LED lights up, the "play" function would be triggered at the same time. The chip would execute "forward" when blue LED is on. In the same way, volume changes when the green LED is on. I also keep the switches on the breadboard of the recorder project, so I can control those functions by pressing the buttons, too.

    halloween pumpkin! 

    Here’s my LED pumkin man.  The led eyes blink with fright when an unsuspecting kid steps on a nearby mat that triggers scary sounds and brings the pumpkin to life!  OOOOooooooo!  Scary!

      Hello, I’m from germany and me english is not good at all, but I’m building a Halloweensite and I like pumpkins and their scarving and your site was very informative and a great help for myself. I hope I’ll get as far as you’ll get with your site. Best wishes for the future.

      If you own a new automobile with an extended warranty, it is better to employ a local car.

    project proposal sketches 

    So I have some pretty silly ideas, just bare with me.

    This is a simulation of natural grasses rustling as someone walks past a vase.

    how it works:
    3 vases filled with "natural" grasses with IR sensor in the bottom of the vase, detects when the beam is broken by a passer – by and triggers a buzzer motor to rustle the grass for a short period.
    Each vase is wired separate.  The illusion is of something walking thru the grass along side the person.

    This idea was developed with Erik Burke as a way to determine how close or far two bikes are from eachother. 

    how it works:
    Erik and his girlfriend, Taelor, ride their bikes together, yet Erik doesn’t know if he is riding too fast or slow.  We decided that the UNTANDEM TANDEM is the solution he needs. 
    Bike 1 has an IR reciever and bike 2 has an IR emmitter.  Bike 1 will then alert the rider (Erik) if bike 2 (Taelor) is too far behind or too close.  Bike 1 rider will then know to slow down or speed up.
    Bike 1 will emitt either a verbal or visual, light, que to let Erik know how far behind Taelor is from him.

    3. Zipper Time
    Inspired by JooYoun Paek’s "Zipper Orchestra" I thought it would be funny to change the zipper to trigger "do it" music and dim the lighting.  I know, I know……This is 12 year old humor, but hey….it makes me giggle.  I guess that means I’m 12.  I can handle that.

    how it works:
    1 pair of jeans with a metal zipper that when unzipped dims the lighting and plays Barry White songs.
