We wanted something tactile and Halloween-ey. It would have been efficient to just open a chat window, but if someone can respond by moving a wireless Ouija board puck, that seems like a fun coffee table adornment.

What it does

Someone will post their question to the Internet, and answers will "display" as the puck moves around the spirit board.

How we built it

So far, the concept is to move a magnet underneath a Ouija board. It will have to be controlled by a Wifi controller, perhaps and ESP32 or RasPi.

Challenges we ran into

Coming up with a name.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Getting a team together at the 11th hour.

What we learned

Never miss IoTHackDay. That is the path of regret.

What's next for Cloud Ouija

Integration with home assistants like Amazon Echo or Google Home.
