For this project I decided to focus on the fact that a lot of veterans are coming back from war with tinnitus. In order to understand the constant distractions needed to avoid focusing on the ringing I made a wheelchair that would trigger a bomb sound followed by tinnitus effects every time it would stop.  The user would have to keep moving to avoid the annoying sounds, the same way people with tinnitus have to get distracted to avoid hearing the buzzing inside their brains.

Technically, I used a potentiometer connected to the NET Lab Kit r\through xbee radios.
