Inspiration

Nowadays, people are connected through wireless connections, such as, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and base stations. Have you ever gotten frustrated over a online message, or a text, that just won't send due to bad connections? That's why we're here, coming to the rescue with the Connecting the unconnected. With simple mechanical parts, you can send a person what you want to say to them without worrying if you guys are both connected to wireless connections.

What it does

It sends a person's message (in Morse Code!) to another person on the receiving end without people overhearing it and vice versa. The communication works both ways!

How we built it

We built it with microphones, audio jacks, aluminum brackets, nuts and bolts, paper cups, strings, and tissues.

Challenges we ran into

Since it is a communication system, our team originally planned to build three connected devices; however, due to the time limit, we thought it would be a good idea to make two working devices first and can always add in additional ones as we desired later on.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

The system works! Now we can send messages to others without worrying about a bad wireless connection!

What we learned

Simple Electromechanical components can have functionalities just as useful as the digital components, and sometimes, even better!

What's next for Connecting the unconnected

We will add in more connected devices.
