Built with a Particle Photon and STL files available online, this little statue with a glowing shark atop it tells people if your calendar is free, busy, or even about to be busy. Heads up: schedule is called from Microsoft Office Outlook’s VFB file format.
My work schedule can get pretty crazy! Really crazy… I thought it might be cool to come up with a way to communicate to that to folks I work with.
I built a little wifi connected RGB LED that will display whether I’m busy, free or about to be busy inside of a 3d printed case. I’ve got all of the 3d files and code here available for download.
Particle Photon with Headers: The Photon is a $19 tiny Wi-Fi development kit for creating connected projects and products for the Internet of Things. It’s easy to use, it’s powerful, and it’s connected to the cloud. Read more.
