2015-06-24 (W) Vibrating Distance Sensor

An Instructable was started for the Vibrating Distance Sensor. To add some appeal to the cover image a quick sonar graphic was made in a drafting program by drawing thick green lines on a black background to look like an old sonar readout. The effect was not perfect. Instructables seem to do well when there is a developed cover image so an evening was spent to create some play between the fonts for the title and the sonar image.


Cover image for Instructable

Images were selected for the Instructable and arranged in order. Selected images were chosen from different blog posts throughout the project. For demonstration sake they have been compiled below but will appear in full resolution for the Instructable and not animated. Full resolution images were selected rather than the scaled version uploaded through Google and Blogger.
