Step 7: Test and programming

Picture of Test and programming
Find a temporary place for your laser pointer on one side of the room. Masking tape works pretty well to keep the switch depressed. Aim it at schemer.

Head over to the programming website and customize schemer's sensitivity.

Normally, schemer is programmed to do nothing when the laser light strikes its light sensor. However, if you break the beam, it reacts and sends a control code to the iPod. In this case, breaking the beam for 1 second causes the volume to go up. Neat huh?

Soon we'll post videos of us waving all over the place (^.^)/
