With this Bit, you can control your circuits with motion. The motion trigger is similar to the sensor on an automatic door: when someone is moving nearby, it sends an ON signal to the following Bits. It's very sensitive, so don't move a muscle unless you want to be detected! Try it with some LEDs to create a security light.

The motion trigger can sense an area of around 10 feet by 10 feet. This Bit works by detecting infrared heat from nearby objects. It's great at detecting things that are warmer than the surrounding environment (like warm-blooded animals such as people and pets).
