Bengaluru: Harshi and Rudransh, tech-savvy and curious-by-nature siblings, have built six innovative IoT smart light projects using the WizKlub platform. They have created Web Apps and Alexa Skills to control the smart light. Harshi and Rudrash are an apt example of how learning can be fun by using creativity and technology in today’s day and age. They assembled and connected WizKlub’s IoT microprocessor ESP32 based WizGear kit and the Smart light module with WizKlub’s IoT Coding platform wizblock.ai over the Internet. In all of their experiments, they created their own programs on wizblock.ai and controlled the Smart Light over the Internet to display interesting patterns like rainbow colors, heart-beat etc. WizKlub’s WizGear kit is available on Amazon store here – link.
One of the other relevant projects for these times conducted by them is to check if the Covid vaccination slots are available or full and get a notification through the Smart Light when a slot is available. Another application includes flashing of the smart light to green if in a cricket match, a batsman hits a six and red if he hits a four. This was a great way to be updated on the recent IPL matches even if they were not in front of their TV. The output of all these applications is also available through Alexa in any regional language. Other interesting projects include painting using an IoT brush, and notification when the International Space Station passes over their location. And the last one was to connect Facebook to their smart light.
The tech-duo have already planned and ideated their upcoming projects- connecting the Smart Gear light to Google Assistant, Mars Rover and building blockchain.
