Might I pipe in with a somewhat disconnected suggestion (I still
can't manage to fit a makerspace membership in the budget).. <br>
Raspberry PI + OpenDMX USB->DMX cable + cheapest DMX lights
available + speakers and a couple of IR sensors (how long is this
make sure the PI gets Ethernet and it can be reprogrammed over
available network.. Assuming such network was available....even if
not.. IP it and it can be reprogammed by the expedient of plugging a
laptop into it. Sadly the DMX lights would be the expensive piece..
but could be seasonally reprogrammed for different color schemes..
Just a thought... I could even help if needed<br>

type="cite">After talking it over with several people, it seems
like the most popular idea is to decorate the bridge with some
kind of lights and/or sounds that are activated when people walk
through the tunnel - kinda like the Indy Airport pedestrian
walkway. What do people think of this idea? It would take a bit
longer to implement, but if we took our time and designed it well,
it could be something that lasts in the walkway for a long time.
We could just use IR detectors to sense when someone walks by. We
could then play a note using the same system used for the IR harp
project. There are lights in the bridge that we could tie into for
electricity. The bridge also has a drop ceiling which would make
installing our own lights for this project fairly easy.<br>
So, what do people think of this idea? Is it worth doing? Do
people want to take on a longer project like this?<br>
