Smart Mirror

This will serve as a brief description of your project. Limit this to three sentences because it can become overly long at that point. This copy should draw the user in and make she/him want to read more.

Final Milestone

My final milestone is the increased reliability and accuracy of my robot. I ameliorated the sagging and fixed the reliability of the finger. As discussed in my second milestone, the arm sags because of weight. I put in a block of wood at the base to hold up the upper arm; this has reverberating positive effects throughout the arm. I also realized that the forearm was getting disconnected from the elbow servo’s horn because of the weight stress on the joint. Now, I make sure to constantly tighten the screws at that joint.

Third Milestone

My final milestone is the increased reliability and accuracy of my robot. I ameliorated the sagging and fixed the reliability of the finger. As discussed in my second milestone, the arm sags because of weight. I put in a block of wood at the base to hold up the upper arm; this has reverberating positive effects throughout the arm. I also realized that the forearm was getting disconnected from the elbow servo’s horn because of the weight stress on the joint. Now, I make sure to constantly tighten the screws at that joint.

First Milestone

My first milestone is connecting raspberry pi and running the Magic Mirror program on my monitor. By using Github, I downloaded the Magic Mirror software and loaded it onto the Raspberry Pi with an SD card. I also changed things such as turning the monitor into portrait mode and stopping the mirror from auto booting. For my second milestone I am planning to add more modules and build a frame. Since it was my first time using Raspberry Pi it was a little challenging to learn how to get it running on the monitor but it was a fun learning process.

Starter Project
TV-B-Gone

My Starter Project is the TV-B-Gone. It uses 4 infrared lights which are signaled by a microcontroller to turn off or power on the TV. It’s powered by 2 AA batteries and is controlled by a microcontroller which sends patterns of code to the lights when the button is clicked. The patterns of codes the microcontroller runs through go from most common codes in the USA to least common until the right pattern matches with the TV and sends a frequency to power the TV off. It also consists of 2 resistors which reduce current flow so that the LEDs don’t destroy or short, 5 transistors which allow only a certain amount of voltage to enter and power the lights, and 2 capacitors which store the electrical charge. This project includes a lot of soldering which was also a challenge because it was a new skill to me.
