What it does

It has a potential to make any kind of surface smart. It uses an advanced knock detection technique and also distinguishes between a knock patten and something thrown at it .

How we built it

The brains of Surface are handled by INTEL EDISON, which makes it a IoT Enabled device. The knocking of the sensor is detected via an Accelerometer and as usual alot of coding makes it a potential market product.

Challenges we ran into

Detecting the knocks out of accelerometer was a big challenge and then distinguishing the patterns.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Achieving those knocks on the surface precisely and for a very vast distance is a commendable accomplishment we made.

What we learned

Aside from hardware skills we learned coding out for advanced and precise algorithms.

What's next for Surface

Maybe a product in near future.
