After days of struggling with how I am going to execute my ideas and concepts for the final project, I decided that I needed to first test the components I intended to use in the project. The components are: an ultrasonic range sensor, a long flex sensor, a force sensor, a servo motor, and a dial control, which should be compatible with my Arduino kit. Here we go!


Next week, we have to come up with a prototype for playtesting.

1. Ultrasound range sensor: https://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/Ping; https://randomnerdtutorials.com/complete-guide-for-ultrasonic-sensor-hc-sr04/


2. Force sensor (FSR): http://arduinolearning.com/code/force-sensitive-resistor-example.php
