Kitchener Waterloo PCH Hardware Hackathon 2015. A useful project.

How it works

Using a RFID sensor build into your washing machine, phones, wallets and other sensitive items are detected. The power to your machine is cut and a voice tells you to remove your items.

Challenges I ran into

Long enough range on the sensor.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Surveys and talking to real people. Getting 8 strangers together and build something working.

What I learned

Always hard to guess how the judging will be weighted.

What's next for Dry Phone

Make one that can stick on the outside of an existing machine.
