ShiftBrite Electric Eye

My first arduino project is a 3x3 matrix of ShiftBrite LEDs and an ultrasonic rangefinder. It’s a proximity-triggered light show.

I'm really enjoying the ShiftBrite modules. There's a ton of potential with them and they're very easy to use.

Very cool. Does anyone else have experience with melding sensors and shiftbrites?

The evilmadscience panel does something similar to what I would like achieve.

Could a sensor be used to increase the color from light colors to warmer colors as someone comes close?
