|HIVE13 Tribute to Galileo|
The above picture shows the hex-shaped structure and the six approach vectors (two red, two green, two blue) radiating out from where the six distance sensors would be located. The objective is to have some distance sensing ability when a person approaches from one of these six directions. The desired range is roughly 36" down to 6", more or less. These are analog inputs to the Arduino. The Arduino outputs an increasing intensity to the red/green/blue LED outputs. A shorter distance equals a brighter intensity. Once up close, you could wave your hands in front of the sensors to dynamically change the rgb values of the merged LED light.
