We currently have a white board where our members create polls throughout the year such as ‘Is water wet?’ and ‘What’s the best girl scout cookie?’ This project is a slack bot and mobile app to manage and automate these polls.
We are following a tutorial Microsoft displayed at the Grace Hopper Conference this year. Using some straw, rubber bands, and an arduino we can make a robotic hand that can move like a human’s can.
The magic mirror was made using a raspberry pi, a monitor and a 2-way mirror. Using and modifying the open source Magic Mirror2 code we set up the screen to display WiC events, the date and time, and some local news. By using a 2-way mirror we could have this display shine through so you can get some useful information while using a mirror. View Blog Post about this project.
The arcade table was created using a raspberry pi 3 to run Retropie, in order to create a bar top arcade emulator. It is for one or two players with multiple games on the system. Can be found in the WiC space.
The projects committee decided to create our own version of a Gameboy. We 3D printed a case and used a raspberry pi with retropie to create the emulator. We soldered the pi to buttons, speakers, and a power supply. After downloading games we had a running gameboy emulator.
The wearable pulse monitor bracelet was developed to help young children deal with stress and have a way to take action against their anxiety.
