Arduino + Flash Physical Prototype Demonstration

Arduino + Flash Physical Prototype Demonstration

This is a physical prototype that was put together as part of the Interaction Design Praxis coursework. The product idea was aimed at busy parents in the professional work environment who have to be on “standby” for their kids but needed a discreet method of receiving, and viewing messages. And so this concept explores one of our ideas where a discreet object is used to alert and display messages. Continue reading Arduino + Flash Physical Prototype Demonstration

Super basic Arduino timer

Super basic Arduino timer

I didn’t realize it would be this easy to build a timer within Arduino. This is not the LED blink code! It’s pretty much based of skyl4rk’s post in this thread. I have a clock running within Arduino and I can configure when to turn the LED on by hour, minutes and even seconds. Eventually we need to somehow connect the Arduino with the user interface to have it control the timer.

As far as the prototype goes, it works for now but it needs to be more robust since the clock is very rudimentary.
