As I was relaxing at my desk, watching a youtube video on different Asian snacks, one part of the video got my attention. As the vlogger was talking about the mountain of snacks piled on the check out table, I noticed that instead of directly handing money to the cashier, he placed it on a tray. The cashier then took the money and placed some coins on that same try. Teeming with curiosity, I did a quick Google search.
What it does
The Liquay offers a place to put money so that the cashier and the customer don't need to directly touch each other to complete an in-person transaction. This system of putting money in trains originally comes from Japan, but I am just making my own version with a few changes due to the coronavirus. In addition, it's meant to be cleaned at the end of each day because of all the money that it touched.
How I built it
I first made a model of the tray in Autodesk Fusion 360, then I made a simple website to display some of the information about my project. Then after I made a presentation, I published it to youtube and began learning how to edit the video well.
Challenges I ran into
Since it's been a long time since I've used Autodesk Fusion 360, I had to relearn the basics and even some advanced techniques to bring out the best in the model. Plus, my computer's GUI isn't optimal for Fusion 360 so there was a plethora of crashes and problems that I ran into.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I'm proud of launching my first, complete, individual project on DevPost. Plus I'm really proud of relearning some design and implementation techniques in Autodesk Fusion 360.
What I learned
I learned about basic and advanced techniques in Autodesk Fusion 360. I learned how to solve some of the problems with my GUI and learned a little more deeply in Computer Hardware.
What's next for Liquay
All I'm really looking forward to do is to inspire someone more qualified to release products and hope that the community improves based of this idea. I just hope that the negative side effects of the coronavirus become alleviated thorough our hardwork and determination.
