How can we combine all of the things? An overly ambitious hack using new technologies we haven't used before sure! We originally wanted to make Fringe show transition times shorter by abstracting the lighting, sound and images into a block based interface - while we didn't get 80% of it done, the base system is still pretty cool.
What it does
We can dynamically add new IoT devices to our system such as Låmp and control them through a web app.
How we built it
We used React for the frontend and Flask for the server hosted on the Dragonboard. We also have ESP 8266 microcontrollers to control the IoT devices. We wired our own device using a relay to trigger the låmp.
Challenges we ran into
We don't know how to write React, use microcontrollers or wire låmps so we had difficulty getting things up and running. Therefore we did not manage to build much of the system or construct many IoT devices.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Having the ambition to try new technologies, we also drank a lot of Huel.
What we learned
Over scoping is obvious in hindsight, scope smaller than smaller.
What's next for Performance Enhancer
Ideally we want to rip it apart and start again but we definitely want to explore IoT more
