    Hi,

    Im having some difficulty trying to make a circuit.
    I want to create a desk lamp which only switches on/off when you wave
    your hand across the sensor.

    I will be using
    4x AAA batteries 1.5v Each 1150mAh
    8 LED 3.6 Forward Volts - 20mAh
    120 ohm Resistors

    Not sure about the sensor and other components..

    Please can someone help me specify the materials and circuit layout.

    Thanks

    Maybe try an infrared phototransistor and infrared LED cct for motion
    detection.

    I have seen some clever circuits (probably in EDN design ideas) that used
    the LED's as a photodiode as well

    I would suggest AA cells over AAA cells.

    Sure, for US$60.00/hr.

    Good Luck!

    I thought that for a second, but ckt is more common, though probably
    less correct.
