Week 10: Blinky Blinky

WIFI Blinky

WiFi board working



First idea:

Pet door

This is a pet door, if you want to open it, you need to touch this door. When the door feels very comfortable, it will open.

Second idea:

“morning” alarm clock

Every morning your alarm clock is ringing but you turn off the alarm clock in your sleepy sleep, causing you to be late for work. So you need an alarm clock that can wake you up. You can hear the sound, and you can feel someone waking up you.

Third idea:

Cheers baby pen

When you finish your work project, you need to celebrate in time. You can touch anything with a pen, and the pen will say: “cheers baby”

  1. Nice ideas, Leng!
    pet door: what kind of pet is this for? a cat? a dog? Does this product fit with your current pet care routine? i’d be concerned about being able to document this one if you don’t personally have a pet and door to use. if you do, it’s a pretty reasonable idea to build for your final project– the next step would be to research pet door opening mechanisms and come up with a design and parts list. Chicken coop owners are inclined to build this kind of thing too, as a search term.

    alarm clock: an alarm clock that pokes you with a big cartoon finger would be hilarious and doable. Here’s a project you could look to for inspiration: https://youtu.be/mXLzfAHl4-k and a well-documented robot arm made with servo motors: https://www.instructables.com/id/Pocket-Sized-Robot-Arm-meArm-V04/ and an add-on for Feather that makes it easy to control multiple servos: https://www.adafruit.com/product/2928 (I have one of these and will bring it for you to borrow, but I don’t have any servo motors) you could potentially have the alarm happen over the internet, so that it is triggered by IFTTT, for instance.

    Your pen idea is fun, but perhaps a bit simple for the final project. It would be possible without any programming, just use this board: https://www.adafruit.com/product/2342 and trigger the sound to play with a button or cap-touch sensor: https://www.adafruit.com/product/1374

    1. Hi, Becky,
      1. The pet is this door. If you want to open the door, you need to touch this door surface such like touching a cat body. This door can record you touch times and strength data. When this door receives enough data, (i mean this door feeling comfortable) it will be open. Sometimes your mom is angry because she lost money and wants to angry with you. You just need to open this door. Your mom needs to calm down and pat this door.
      2. I got it.
      3. This pen is my other class homework. I want to realize this idea. This pen not only a pen. I also have an APP which could create a music according to this pen record sounds when you touch something. You can change the tone and beat and so on.
