2015-04-28 (Tu) Cyborg Distance Sensor

Measurements were taken from a 9V battery holder which has a built-in clip. This clip will attach to the back of the existing enclosure and provide power while a 3.5mm headphone socket will send a signal to the 5V relay coil. A second enclosure will not be necessary. Instead of printing a second lid the current lid may simply be drilled with the 9V battery holder as a template.
