Pressure Plate, a Lego Mindstorms EV3 pressure plate robot

A nice little robot that can tell if there is anything on top of it. It only uses one touch sensor. The idea of the robot is to be used in classes with students to explore different interesting security options. This robot in particular could detect when the object placed on it gets "stollen". Have you ever watched Indiana Jones? :)
