Motion Glass



In this project, I used PIR (A passive infrared sensor) motion sensor to calculate your shower time. This is connected to an Arduino Wifi board that is inside of a clear acrylic case. The duration of your shower will be measured based on your motion and the shower record will be stored and notify you through your email/SMS/twitter account through the I have chosen to use SMS as my report method, but I can utilize many other options like. Instead of an Arduino Uno, I only used Arduino Wifi board called, adafruit HUZZAH ESP8266, to fit and run every component in this motion glass.

For this project, I had to set up the sequence to activate the timer and send the information to myself to remind me that I should save water by taking a shorter shower!

Project Proposal: Who did we pass by w/ Wireless Arduino​



There’s an old saying in Buddism that even brushing past a person is one’s karma.

My final project will be on our daily interactions with strangers. Using a near-field communication (NFC) sensor or a radio frequency identification (RFID) sensor, I want to create a device that keeps track of people I passed by unconsciously. Though the premise of this idea is that everyone has this device, I find this interaction very interesting.



  1. Build a 2″x 2″ device that interacts with another device.
  2. Make a 6″x 6″ box that lights up (green or red).
  3. Put the Bluetooth or NFC sensor inside of the device.
  4. Before you go to bed, you will be able to see the list of people who passed by throughout the day.
