This is a 3D tracking system that you can build in your garage. Make released this article on how to build yours. An Arduino can detects changes in the capacitance of the sensor and then send this information back to the computer.

Have you guys explored how much this could scale up? What would theoretically limit it?

If you could build a man-sized one, could someone wear rubber shoes and run around inside it?

I am hoping someone can help me. I built everything and downloaded the arduino and processing sketches. My problem is that the Arduino sketch is fine but I get a " serial = new Serial(this, Serial.list()[serialPort], 115200);" reading from Processing. I changed the sketch to serial port 3 (ardiuino connected to COM4) and still nothing, I have the same fault read out.

Either I am missing something or I have doen something wrong- Help please!!
