Constantly sleep deprived, our team searched for ways to improve our sleeping habits. Studies show that warm light relaxes the body and prepares us for sleep. Additionally we wanted to come into this hackathon using hardware in some way. So it was perfect for us to control an LED strip to give us the perfect condition for sleep.
What it does
In order to control SleePi, you need to go onto the companion website, www.sleepi.tech. On this companion website, you can input in personal information and if you click on the "Normal" button, the website will calculate your recommended sleep time and the LED strip will automatically gradually turn into a warmer color to facilitate your sleep. There are additional features such as "Rainbow" which will flash a bunch of lights on the LED strip to help you wake up.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We originally going to send the information from the website via PHP but we later found out that PHP is really buggy so we had to come up with a completely new method
Accomplishments that we're proud of
What we learned
What's next for SleePi
If we had more time we would like to have it connect to Spotify and play music when you are about to sleep.
