Materials required:
- Tape
- Arduino jumper wires (quite a few)
- Enough wooden planks to work with

Tools required:
- Illustrator
- Arduino (+ Processing)
- Tools to solder
- Milling machine
- Lastercutter

Process:
1. Start with making a design for your vinyl player. In Illustrator you can design a circle with tracks in it. In our project, we've chosen for two tracks. In these tracks, you design higher/lower parts. Don't forget to cut a circle in the middle - Here you can place a pipe which gives the support to make your box with the potentiometers turn around the mega vinyl player.

2. After you've made your flat 2D design, use a large milling machine to cut out your mega vinyl player. To give you an idea of an size: We used 120x120 centimeters.

3. Okay, now a difficult part: Design a way to make your box with potentiometer turn around the mega vinyl player and support itself. For example: We used a beam which is put around the pipe. At the end of the beam we glued a wheel.

4. Measure the length between your two tracks. This amount gives you an idea how to place your potentiometers, and how large your box will be. Now design a box with your two potentiometers sticking out of the box. In the box you have the Arduino and your jumper wires, together with a motor shield and your USB-cable. We use the motor shield to make the box together with beam move of course.

5. Bring it all together! When you've glued your potentiometer in the box, connect a piece of wood to it and add some weight on it, so that it always drops when there's a difference in height (see the pictures). You can use the lasercutter to make your box, piece of wood, ...

6. When you think you've got everything. Time to program!

Code:
Note: The code has been tweaked constantly. So there are a lot of stuff in the comments. Feel free to play around with it! ^_^

ARDUINO:
---------------

const int
PWM_A = 3,
DIR_A = 12,
BRAKE_A = 9,
SNS_A = A0;
boolean flag = false;
boolean flag1 = false;

void setup() {
// Configure the A output
pinMode(BRAKE_A, OUTPUT); // Brake pin on channel A
pinMode(DIR_A, OUTPUT); // Direction pin on channel A

// Open Serial communication
Serial.begin(9600);
}

void loop() {

// Set the outputs to run the motor forward

digitalWrite(BRAKE_A, LOW); // setting brake LOW disable motor brake
digitalWrite(DIR_A, LOW); // setting direction to HIGH the motor will spin forward

analogWrite(PWM_A, 255); // Set the speed of the motor, 255 is the maximum value

// read the input on analog pin 0:
int sensorValue = analogRead(A4);
int sensorValue2 = analogRead(A5);

// Serial.println(sensorValue);
if(sensorValue > 700 && flag == false){
Serial.print("1");
flag = true;
}
if(sensorValue < 700){
flag = false;
}
if(sensorValue2 > 160 && flag1 == false){
Serial.print("2");
flag1 = true;
}
if(sensorValue2 < 160){
flag1 = false;
}
// int sensorValue2 = analogRead(A4);
// print out the value you read:
/* Serial.print(sensorValue);
Serial.print(" + "); */

//Serial.print(sensorValue);
//Serial.print(',');
//Serial.print(sensorValue2);
//Serial.println();

}
