Valentine’s Day Cards Box Upgraded with IR Break Beam Sensors, Musical Clips
This is cute. Greg P. had to build a Valentine’s Day box for school. His response, “Why do simple?” He assembled a project that uses IR break beam sensors to know when a card has been inserted in the box, and then plays a randomly selected music track. ♫ 🙂 ♫
And here’s a video showing the box’s interior with “She Loves You” by the Beatles playing:
Very cool Greg! Thanks for posting on Facebook and letting us know.
