The Indian Mom

You get off of work late and start walking to your car. You don’t hear the footsteps behind you because you’re too busy fumbling for your keys in your bag and thinking about your Saturday night plans. What happens next? What if someone starts following you? Don’t worry you’re never going to be alone again. All your loved ones are always protecting you because of The Indian Mom. The way The Indian Mom works is that once you’re leaving from somewhere you can click on the widget relating to the amount of time you’re gonna reach home in. If you don’t reach in the selected time ” The Indian Mom ” is going to send a text message to all your emergency contacts asking them to check on you if you’re in trouble or you’re just window shopping while coming home.

Siddhant’s Final Project Proposal

The Name of the collection of these products is called “The Indian Mom”

This Device is kept next to your sink and keeps on shouting at you till the dishes in the sink are not washed and the sink is completely empty.
This is a safety device that you keep at your home . You text the device before leaving from somewhere to come home and if you don’t reach home in a suitable time its going to send a text to your emergency contacts to notify them thinking that you might be in trouble.
I call this alarm clock ” The weapon of choice” . This alarm clock starts waking you up with a soothing tone and gradually increases its volume and harshness in the sounds. THIS ALARM CLOCK DOES NOT HAVE A SNOOZE BUTTON. The only way to turn it off is to get up from your bed and leave the room . LOL

Siddhant’s Raiden Halloween Costume

Raiden is a video game character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. Based on the Japanese thunder god, Raijin, and portrayed in the series canon as the thunder god and appointed protector of Earthrealm, Raiden defends the planet from myriad otherworldly threats alongside his handpicked warriors. He commands many supernatural abilities such as teleportation, flight, and control of the elements.

Being a Mortal Kombat fan since childhood and Raiden being by favorite chracter I decided to make a costume that would be pretty similar to his. His thundering eyes and his orb that he uses as a weapon were my main goal to achieve. I ordered the costume from wallmart and concentrated on making his Thundering eyes and orb.

Raidens’s Orb

This orb uses a capacitve sensor which is a copper wire, so whenever someone touches the wire the orb lights up.


Plastic christmas decoration for the orb


20 piece SMD leds Blue

1 strip of neopixel leds

Raden Halloween Costume

For my Halloween costume ill be working on making a Raden costume from the video game series Mortal Kombat. He is the God of Lightning so his eyes light up and he attracts lighting through his hands. So I’m going to use a Capacitive sensor on the orb so that whenever I catch the orb with 2 hands, the eyes, his shield and the orb light up and represent the lighting.

Siddhant’s Week 5 HW


define PIN 6

define NUM_LEDS 8

define BRIGHTNESS 50

// Parameter 1 = number of pixels in strip
// Parameter 2 = pin number (most are valid)
// Parameter 3 = pixel type flags, add together as needed:
// NEO_RGB Pixels are wired for RGB bitstream
// NEO_GRB Pixels are wired for GRB bitstream, correct if colors are swapped upon testing
// NEO_RGBW Pixels are wired for RGBW bitstream
// NEO_KHZ400 400 KHz bitstream (e.g. FLORA pixels)
// NEO_KHZ800 800 KHz bitstream (e.g. High Density LED strip), correct for neopixel stick
Adafruit_NeoPixel strip = Adafruit_NeoPixel(NUM_LEDS, PIN, NEO_GRBW + NEO_KHZ800);

Globe ( Plush Night Light )

This is a Globe Plush night light. You can clearly see India China parts of Africa and some parts of Europe from this side .

This Globe plush light features cutouts that, when lit, shows glowing continents on its surface surfaces. Set it on a nightstand or dresser near partner or they could just cuddle it and help them fall asleep without being afraid of the dark.

I have been an avid traveler all my life. i have been travelling since i was a kid. i have been to more than 40 cities outside of India . Travelling has made me aware of different cultures and have been fortunate enough to make friends all around the world. The water is black in this globe as to have emphasis on the water pollution and shortage all over the world. The continents light up in this night light. The target market for this night lamp could be travelers and artsy people . it could also be marketed to people who care about the environment to give a message.

I used the laser cutter to cut out the world map on wool.
