for getting rid of noise - connect a capacitor between the input pin and groun. I used a 1uf which works perfectly.
pretty insane to me that sparkfun doesn't mention the necessity of the pullup/pulldown resistor...
this company has a great stock, but all of their information seems to be lacking depth and has caused me a lot of issues in the past.

it blows my mind there is not a simple "hook black to ground, red to power, yellow to input reading" in the description
nor is there configuration help in any of the sharp sensor product descriptions
what is the appropriate wire configuration (color wise)?
No public wish lists :(
