DAY5 intern in Deutschland : Brainstorming
Last night we have brainstorming about what project we will working on in an internship program: All things considered, we have 2 ideas.
Tree planting assistant
Calliope already have necessary sensors to sense atmosphere surrounds them for instance light, temperature or connect with additional module. We choose chat interface because it is user-friendly. Look like we talk with cute little assistant and they can response or notify what’s wrong with your plants. For next approach, maybe it can apply for home automation commanding to turn on/off the light or device via this chat and assistants.
But it have limitation Calliope can connected via either Bluetooth or Radio wave at a time, so we want to expand to have many Calliope scatter around we need to find the way to connect them
Because we need Bluetooth connection to connect with Smartphone but it’s can not to connect with two or more Calliope with smartphone at the time.
If we use radio wave, smartphone does not have radio signal receiver to catch signal from Calliope.
Wearable Controller for Education video games
In this project, Calliope already have necessary sensors to apply with video games and we will make Calliope to be a wearable things! We think if make it like watches is good-looking and convenient for kid’s movement.
To implement this project we need 1 Calliope to be Master node and the others will be Slave. A master node connected to laptop or PC it will communicate by using Serial port and the others communicate with master node by radio signal.
Now we have 4 games in our mind those are 24 game, Simon says and motion-based games
