When we met as a team. We were brainstorming about what to make. And after a lot of discussions, one of our teammates came with the idea of making something from a Hat using Arduino and other stuff. So we thought that we could add more things to it and make it better and interesting so people can have fun and even can chill out with our project. We thought of google things and see what more we can add to it so that our project becomes easier and beginner-friendly.
What it does
In our project, The Coolinter3000 allows people to chill around in the summers. So that it has many functions to do. You can switch on and off the fan
How I built it
The project is a top hat that consists of a servo mounted fan and LEDs. We came up with the project idea organically while brainstorming as a team--someone mentioned the idea of a hat and then another person suggested putting a propeller on it and we just thought of the most wacky hat possible
Challenges I ran into
The challenges we faced were, that we didn't have all the components we needed but still we made a project using components we had.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
that we completed the project on time. and our project is working the way we wanted it to. and We are proud of our project as we made it in really fewer components which is a sign of. Being online and completing Hardware projects is not easy but we made it to work.
What I learned
We learned how to face problems and do not give up at any cost. We also learned about new technologies like AWS, EchoAR, tankard, Polling, and other stuff. It was a really good experience to attend those workshops as they were really well controlled and maintained
What's next for Coolinator3000
So as per now we dont have any idea. But yes After wards we will be adding some more components to it so that it looks fancy, light weighted, more LED lights, some new functionalities and good to use.
Parts used: ELEGOO kit (mostly for sensors: IR remote and receiver, temperature sensor, and also the fan itself and power supply), Arduino nano as the microcontroller, a MOSFET to control the motor, a microphone and two 2n2222 BJTs for the noise sensor, solderless breadboard, jumper wires, LEDs.
