A Talking FISH

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

Hotel Room Cleaning Monitor

Another engineering-wonder/nonsense-project that was just way too much fun to make. In short, it is an ESP32 with a PIR motion sensor that lives in a hotel room and updates a website with the latest time of a movement detection. This motivation for this project emerged about a week ago when I decided to try and work with Python scripts on MIT’s servers.

Robotic Whiteboard | Boarderline – A new thing on its way.

Update! [Video below] 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… Read more Robotic Whiteboard | Boarderline – A new thing on its way.

Autonomous Javelin Retrieving Robot – Javeliner

This robot returns things that people throw just so they could throw them again. Brilliant, I know. More specifically, this robot uses GPS to drive on the field (word #2 of Track&Field), and retrieve javelins from their landing point back to the athletes. Fun fact: I got to present it at MIT’s XFair! It is a tech-expo-career-fair mashup. It was really exciting.

A Story of Light and Sleep

    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.
