    Arduino Laser Tripwire

    Congrats on an awesome project! Few improvement suggestions:1. mirror can be replaced with retro-reflective tape - this way the angle doesn't have to be exact2. the laser can be pulsed with photo-sensor also measuring the ambient light between the pulses - this way we can calculate the relative increase from reflection ignoring variations in ambient lightPractical application of this is in garage door state detection: http://community.garadget.com/t/instructions-for-home-grown-garadget-clone
