I'm an artist and I'm building things with a cnc out of foam and then fiberglassing etc, and I decided that its time to include the interactive element. However, I bit off more than I could chew because the museum wants it installed on MARCH 8th. (i may be able to get another few days but...)
Okay, so 1st. i need to hook up between one and three proximity sensors 5 foot range with accuracy between .1 and 2 feet. 2nd. when those detect something, for them to start a track and as one gets closer, for that track to get louder and softer as you retreat. (hook them up to speakers) 3rd (ish) If I can finish this in time I would also like to have four light sources that dim as people get closer to the same proximity sensors.
I've been looking at the sharp long range infared sensors for up to five feet and also I found this circuit guide for audio-proximity sensor.. (next post since this is my first)
I would be forever indebted to anyone who could help me. any thoughts? Most helpful would be a rough shopping list (including which arduino..) and if someone has the sketch for this I would probably have a heart attack
(would i even need an arduino for this?)
