IoT devices can be very helpful in day to day life, but what happens when one of your devices is used to stalk you?
The goal of this IoT project is to create an ambient desktop device that reminds you to check your email inbox. The motions and color of the box reflect the mounting stress and anxiety reflect how you feel when you procrastinate checking your email. Once you sit down to check email and reset the box, it reflects a calmer state to help you focus.
Some housemates have a habit of hitting the “snooze” button on their alarm too many times. In an effort to efficiently awaken these types of housemates, an IOT alarm will be created. Once programmed, this alarm will first rouse the sleepy housemate with an audio alarm which will be quickly followed by an irritating display of LED lights. The only way to turn off the alarm will be to turn the lights on in the room. The photon will sense whether or not the lights have been turned on using a light sensor. In theory, once the housemate has gotten out of bed and turned the lights on, they will be awake enough to not go back to sleep.
