Description

  • This project involved making a prototype of a device to be used mainly by presenters, professors and teachers. It made use of an Arduino as it computing device, vibrating motors for haptic feedback, a Laser, pressure sensors and some basic circuitry.
  • The purpose of this prototype was to make presentation somewhat easier by having customizable haptic feedback to alert the user of the time remaining, hand gestures to change between slides and an inbuilt laser.
