Peek-a-Squirrel will be a project that allows us to capture high-quality images of typically evasive squirrels. We were thinking of creating an enclosure with bait that would lure the squirrel inside. Once the squirrel is inside the enclosure, a sensor would detect it and send a signal to an attached cell-phone (with bluetooth) that will take a picture. Furthermore, we are thinking about automatically posting the image on social media and analyzing how much people like the images based on our data.

We have several ideas of how we could do the sensor detection (touch pads, lasers, or weight-scales). Our primary source of help would be in Arduino and knowledge about how social media websites collect data.
