Description:
I built a prototype user detection system using a pressure sensor mat, and a visual basic application. I hacked the pressure sensor mat to hook up through USB, and read the results from visual basic. The idea was to make a cheap user detector/counter at tradeshows. The idea was later replaced with a slicker method of using ultrasonic detectors, but the software developed was a good exercise in visual basic and USB API.
