A few months back, I enrolled for a design contest at hackster.io . Needless to say its one of those contest where hundreds(500) of people join but every few complete. Anyway I did my part and here are a few tit-bits I gathered.
I initially though about adding a massive array of features but then remembered that it was a contest sponsored by Cypress. Instead I worked on one part and ended up getting stuck in a loop. I started with the Texas Instruments MSP430 and finally settled on using a RPi 2 instead. The idea took me a month to finalize and 4 days to implement! That was so stupid I though BUT the fact it a lot of the times this happened. I spend an additional week trying to learn PSOC creator and made a small video.
I also did a lot of goofing around and have the footage to prove it. Its still needs a bit of editing but I will post it
Im pretty OK with the result as everything is clean (thats a first!) and work.
Putting together the enclosure was a tough decision as I did not want to go with the boring box design but due to personal blunders, I had to cave.
Here is a time lapse that was the result of the Cel Robox.
Here is why I am actually writing this blog. I need feedback. Feedback on what is right and what is wrong. Why this is important is ...
(Content to be filled in after collection of feedback)
So what do I solicit feedback on? Here it is... https://www.hackster.io/inderpreet/while-you-were-away-an-office-management-solution-8f3d48
So the question is... "what do you guys think?"
"what is the first thing that comes to you mind when you see this content?"
"Why am I hungry"... OK forget that one.
Thanks in advance.
Live long and prosper.
