Free food on campus. Right now.
The simple HackMIT project revisited! This time with a more robust algorithm and better update rate, the Free Food API provides real-time data about availability of free food across the campus at MIT.
Event though it looks like one, it’s not a spelling error. There’s a board, and a line, so I thought “Boarderline” could be an absolutely amazing name. Feel free to criticize my thinking. I think I am starting to criticize my thinking too.
Anyway, Boarderline is a robotic whiteboard. I want it to be internet connected, have API communication, and server side capabilities. Though so far only the mechanical side is done. Therefore, to celebrate that milestone (which I’m kinda happy with, I mean it took 3 iterations to get somewhat right), I am uploading a video and some photos of the making process!
One of the secrets to happiness is having the possibility to lie down in bed, organize yourself neatly under the blanket and between your pillows, close your eyes, and THEN shut the room’s light. In this post I will tell you the years-long story of my journey towards “perfecting” remote-light-switching devices.
