1. Sensing PIR (passive infrared) sensor tracks motion in front of lamp for when you first sit down. FSR (force-sensitive resistor) sensor tracks pressure of phone on plate.
2. Processing FLO processes and calculates the time and data from both sensors with Arduino.
3. Actuation FLO outputs an mp3 audio message from external speakers, when conditions are met.
