Premise: Tweeting cookie jar for help with dieting.
Goals and Summary: I'm trying my best to muck through creating a sensor that alerts my girlfriend (and my friends on twitter) when I'm too close to our cookie jar. I'm following Timothy Ferris' "Four Hour Body", which means that I need to stick to low-glycemic index foods for 6 days a week. This sensor will protect the "junk" and ensure compliance to the diet. On Saturday morning at 6 (which is "cheat day") an alarm will go off announcing the beginning of cheat day festivities! I don't want to waste a precious minute.
I'll create the alarm with the microcontroller arduino, writing a code to sense when there's motion in the cookie jar and to create a loud noise and a tweet saying "@mrsenorhill caught with his hand in the cookie jar!" on Sunday through Friday, and then "Wake up it's cheat day!!!" at 7AM on Saturday, and then subsequent "Enjoy that cookie?" for each opening only on that day.

This will be a open to public class, We have a few Arduino's and laptops to use however it is best if you are able to bring a Arduino and Laptop. We will be going over sensor usage. This includes light,temp and ultrasonic and describing a few more. Sensors allow's a Arduino to sense the world around it. There will be sensor kits to purchase that will cost ~ 8-10 dollars.
