3 Ideas for Final

Apologies for the delayed post. Here are my 3 ideas for the final project:


The first is a display which shows you on your desk the data from a time tracking app. This way you can have a reminder of how productive your week has been and if you have been achieving your goals or not.

The second is a lamp that “gets angry” when you spend too much time on either instagram or your phone. Using the data from instagram or a phone usage app such as moment, the lamp will start white and gradually start turning a more aggressive shade of red when you hit your limit.

The final is a kitchen sink grate that when dishes are left in the sink for too long it will email you. Or in the case of PoD it could send emails to bother the KP stewards!

  1. Nice brainstorm, Wes! Did you think about what kinds of sensing/services are required for your various ideas?
    The first and seconds ideas would really stress me out. The third idea requires some clever sensing, perhaps a couple breakbeam sensors: https://www.adafruit.com/?q=breakbeam or a distance sensor made water-resistant.
