Bubble Notifier with Huzzah and Adafruit IO #IoT

One of my students at SVA’s Products of Design grad program, Josh Corn, writes:

I’ve been looking for a softer, less abrupt notification system than a vibration, sound, or light based notice. I couldn’t find anything that fit that criteria so I decided to make my own. Furthermore, I wanted my solution to incorporate my personal interests in clocks and the way we as a society think about time.

From that, Blüp, was born. I came up with the idea of using a bubble in a container of liquid to not only notify me of an event of my choosing, but to also use the time it takes for the bubble to rise to instill a sense of urgency in my response to the event. For example, if you were to receive a message from a boss or other important contact, the bubble would form and rise at a rate that would give you enough time to respond before it pops at the top.

He’s using a Huzzah ESP8266 with Adafruit IO and IFTTT to control an air pump and valve system through a volume of liquid soap to achieve the effect. Check out his process in this Instructable.
