DIY Parking Sonsor using Arduino

This DIY Parking Sonsor using Arduino, ultrasonic range finder and some of components
Mike writes :
The last time I was home visiting my parents I noticed bumper imprints caused by my mother suburban on the stairs leading up from the garage. Their garage it turns out is just barely long enough to fit their gigantic vehicles. So I decided it would be nice to have some visual cue for parking. Out came the arduino and a sonar range finder from Radio Shack.

Spatialized Umbrella v01

This is a cool project idea. When the the rain falling down the raindrop on the umbrella ย�samples play the music in a loop, each speaker playing their own unique raindrop. The LEDs light up the speaker playing at that moment. The tempo of the loop is controlled by a long-range Sharp Infrared range finder. The closer an object is to you, the faster the loop plays. If an object is close enough and a threshold is reached, a lightning sequence is triggered. [more]
