Being a lazy guy, why to sand up just to switch on a fan,light, toaster, etc, etc.. Lets make a portable-wireless-pocket sized controlling device..!
What it does
Basically it controlls any device connected to I-Wave's bluetooth by hand gestures.
How we built it
It is controlled by arduinos. We are basically building a circuit breaker type circuit using IR module which basically interrups the IR & triggers the controller which controls devices.
Challenges we ran into
We 1st though to use a microphone in place of IR, but mic was giving very low output voltage. We then tried tap sensors, knock sensors, but notjhing worked out well. Finally after brainstorming & experimenting for almost 16 hours we finally got an idea to use IRs.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Though we faced challenges & failures, still we kept calm & always looked for another opportunities & ways to overcome the failures. We explored many things in the on going process of Trial, Error & Repeat.
What we learned
What's next for I-Wave
1-Notifier based 2-Wi-fi controlled 3-Simultaneous controlling of devices 4- Combination of locks & patterns
