This project is my attempt at using OpenCV better! This post will reflect my progress, and will be updated as changes are made.
Making time-lapses takes time. And computers have patience. I know, I agree, time lapses should definitely be automated and taken based on information available online. Yes. Yes, I know, it’s… Read more Automated Time-Lapse Generator – A Raspberry Pi Project →
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… Read more Feeding Students! | Free Food API →

And today, something a little different! As part of the MIT class 6.08, which is intro to EECS with Interconnected Embedded Systems, my teammates and I created the FISH as our final project. In a nutshell, it is a smart fish that can answer many many of your questions and also wake you up in the morning! Personally, I was in charge of some of the software functionalities (such as the alarms), of integrating the hardware and software, and of syncing the FISH’s mouth to speech. I also designed and… Read more A Talking FISH →
