Okay, I just saw Shaw's response. If there is the need for more complex gestures, it seems much simpler to have a matrix of individual IR LED, each one paired with an IR Receiver diode, and do the gesture recognition yourself --kind of the way you would programmatically determine the winner in a tic-tac-toe game.
That is an excellent idea. Gesture to MIDI !!
I guess you could also arrange these in a matrix (3x3) and get more complex gestures --like the way you can unlock some smartphones.. very exciting.
Newbie here. I have an Arduino Leonardo (R3?), not the Arduino Pro that you show in the "Hookup Guide." Can I still use the same wiring (using 3.3v instead of 5v ? What about that "level shifter" you mention? Do I need to buy anything else to use this sensor? Thanks

Hi there. This little sensor board is great. We use it in class with Scratch an Python and everyone likes it.
But, we would like to make things a bit more advanced (without getting into programming a microcontroller itself --nothing wrong with that, it is just not the focus of the class)
Question: can I use the Sharp range finder or an analog accelerometer with this board? if so, which one.
I tried the sparkfun tutorial and successfully connected a pot (ground, signal and VCC) and an PIR.
Any other analog sensor that you guys recommend for this board, I'm willing to try it.
No public wish lists :(
