Musical Staircase

Okay, the idea is unoriginal, but Brandon wants to use a musical staircase to investigate behavior. He was able to get the project funded by the Centenary Muses.

  • Arduino Mega
  • 17 IR Proximity Sensors (Something like this will do, but check the range you want (width of stair) and get a sensor built for that range.)
  • Music Instrument Shield
  • Some cheap computer speakers
