Internet-of-Things with Intel Galileo

I created a demo showcasing Internet-of-Things with Intel Galileo board. The board is connected to a LED and a Force Sensitive Resistor (FSR). The LED and FSR can talk to an Android app through a cloud service.

The Perfect Pour

This weekend, I joined Silicon Chef Hardware Hackathon. Our team (Veronica, Stephanie, Judith, Yan & Me) created a smart beer cozy! An Arduino based project that can detect how well you are pouring and prevents you from spilling the beer. We used a 3-axis Accelerometer to detect the tilt angel. Messages are displayed in the LCD screen to signal you whether you are pouring too fast or too slow. And guess what? We won an Arduino project book as the prize! The code is in github.
