    Hi everyone I was wondering if any of you could give me a step by step guide of how I can connect a IR touchless sensor (where can i buy one or how to build one) to a usb lamp and what pieces I would need for it. I am wanting to do something like this for a project for school I have no clue where to start i have looked all over the internet but cant find the right info and would really like to start getting into electronics. If you could help me out that would be great.

    Thanks

    Becki :)

    One thread is enough. Do not post duplicate threads throughout the forum.

    I don't understand what this would do. What does the sensor sense? Do you just want to turn a lamp on and off via the sensor? Does the USB connection of the lamp do anything except supply power?
