Trying for best freshmen hack and most socially useful hack.


Coming back after a long horrible day to drenched laundry / Laundry gone with the wind

What it does

Checks for weather conditions. Utilises openCV to measure amount of movement. RaspberryPi SSHes into an EV3 controller, and moves the rack in/outdoors, and rolls the blinds up/down. Notifies users via email when laundry has been shifted.

Challenges I ran into

Getting openCV to run on a potato RPi, getting locked out of twitter api, NOT HAVING A MONITOR/KEYBOARD to program the pi with.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Staying up till 6am, getting openCV to run on a potato computer, interfacing RPi with EV3 through SSH. Spending money to buy the necessary components also gave me a sense of pride and accomplishment.

What I learned

Bring a monitor and a keyboard if you want to use a RPi.

What's next for CE - launDRY
