I'm looking to interface w/ my car
In looking for what could be practical applications of having an implanted magnet, which I should have by next week or so, I had a thought about extending my senses to my car. I'm planning on using Arduino compatible components, either a sonar or infrared proximity sensor. I'll place this device behind the grill of my car and run a wire back into dash area (I drive a Miata, so it's a short distance).
I then want to make a universal input glove, with wire coiled around the finger with the magnetic implant and a sort of universal port on the back of the glove, that would attach to any of these devices, whether they're on a hat or in this case coming from my car. This would give me an early warning system, basically giving me a sense for when I get to close to the car in front of me..... even if I was being irresponsible and not paying attention. Like looking at my stereo or phone, I'd still "feel it" should my car get too close to another car.
