Breakout board for ST Microelectronics' VL6180X proximity sensor for breadboarding with Teensy and Arduino. VIN is between 3 and 5.5 V. Sensor uses laser range finding (!) to detect absolute distances independent of surface reflectance up to 10 cm away or more depending on ambient lighting. Can be used to recognize hand gestures for sophisticated touchless micro-controlling. Small package, low cost, and low power usage makes integrating into existing projects, or use as a Teensy 3.1 or Arduino Pro Mini add-on board very attractive. Does it work as advertised?
