I was jealous of the kid across the street. He got science kits. I got dolls. Dolls. Redemption begins today. This Arduino- it makes me happy. I enjoy the “copy code, make it work” thing. I found great satisfaction in plugging in the wires, it made me feel powerful. I got a ping sensor to go with it. Ultimately, I think I would have been better off with a different sensor, but even so I’m glad I had something to experiment with.

I found some code here: http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/Ping?from=Tutorial.UltrasoundSensorand and a great tutorial here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_GcoicsNJs

Thanks Gabe for your help making the Arduino work with Max! I look forward to learning more about all of this. :o)
