 +====== How it works ======
 +A laser constantly shines on a [[https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Photoresistor|photoresistor]]. ​ The Arduino constantly reads the voltage from a voltage divider made from a photoresistor and a 20k resistor. ​ When a person interrupts the laser beam, the resistance of the photoresistor drops. The Arduino detects this as a change in voltage and sends a signal to the servo to change positions, releasing a rubber band.
