Presentation Timer (2 of 2) // Wall Servo
22 Feb 2016

Two part demo for Critical Making

A presentation timer that disconnects the presenter from the projector when time is up. A ‘Desk Clock’ is used to set and start the countdown time, and has a 7 segment display for the countdown. A ‘Wall Servo’ presses the input channel selector located on the whiteboard. When the presentation time has elapsed, the wall servo will toggle the input of the projector. As a demo of wifi networking, the two devices communicate state information through a server.
