My original ideas was to use a banana as a proximity sensor. I ran into a few issues along the way. The first being my Arduino was VERY slow. You can see in the video that it takes about a second for the LED to react. This was very difficult in seeing if the circuit was actually working. The second issue was my data stream would sometimes randomly drop to zero. Normally this wouldn’t have been an issue, but given that I had to wait a second in between polls it was rather annoying. I tried fixing this issue by attaching the pins differently to the Arduino and the banana. This unfortunately didn’t fix that issue. I ultimately changed my project to just sense when you were touching the banana.
