TheSleepBuddy (cross project with my friend @LiricTech)


I’m going to build a smart litle box with many functionalities like an alarm clock, a temperature sensor, leds that wakes you up or speakers to play calm music to sleep. The idea behind this project is that my friend will make a replica with different functionalities/sensors and the two boxes will connect together to send informations like kind messages (idk). My friend will also make his own pull request when he’ll be ready.

Checklist before submitting proposal:


  1. Order everything

  2. Prototype printing the case in my local FabLab

  3. making the final case with polypropylene and wood

  4. Program the arduino to do everything I want

    4.1) Program the Adafruit LEDS [4.2) Program and connect the temperature sensor to the arduino and to the LEDS.][only if I have the budget after CNC machining and buying the polypropylene parts ] 4.2) Program the speakers to connect to them in bluetooth with your phone 4.3) Program the Segemented display to make a timer before sleep 4.4) program the LCD display to show the current weather and room temperature with the temperature sensor

  5. Assemble everything !
