Everybody has a dead phone battery, but no way to tell friends that it's dead!
What it does
Simple, at the press of a button -- you can tell your friends your battery is dead.
How I built it
- ESP8266 WiFi Module
- DigitalOcean for hosting our DNS server/backend
- Domain.com .CLUB (deadbattery.club)
Current state of the device is it runs off of USB power. Implementation as a product would require a Lithium-Ion battery and a switch to trigger the device. The actual device would tweet a message.
What's next for The Dead Battery Club
Get a working prototype. At its present state it works, but not well. The DNS server successfully forwards to the server running on DigitalOcean, but little to no processing is done.
