The problems: It's hard for people to organize their clothes in traditional closet, and easily forget which clothes they already have when they want to buy new clothes online or in store. Forget which clothes should do laundry.

Existed solutions: Mostly are customized traditional closets. Some smart closet apps need users to take pictures and upload, too time-consuming. And these apps do not associated with users' closets.

Our solution: The closet will take pictures of any new add clothes. It will count the days you worn each clothes and display on the phone. It can indicate which clothes to pick and to wash by different color of LED on clothes hanger and notice you when the laundry basket is full.

Hardware: A motor controlled rotatable rack. On the rack there are around 20 gates to place clothes, each gate has a number assigned. A control panel (micro controller is expected) decides how long rack should rotate, when to photo, and use WiFi to connect with phone. A photo booth aside. LED system to indicate which clothes to pick also controlled by micro-controller. Weight sensor to measure the weight of laundry basket also linked to controller. This micro-controller may infer to Raspberry Pi.

Software: Phone app. Each clothes has a database: type, picture (new clothes will have no picture), number of the gate (will be assigned a new number if put in again and will be null if clothes is outside of closet), status of need photo or not, and worn days. App will send the specific gate number to the control panel, and all the information control panel get will be updated on the phone.

Easy Cube Clock

Featured Project

Today's alarm clock market is full of inexpensive, but hard to use alarm clocks. It is our observation that there is a need for an alarm clock that is easy to set, and turn on and off with little instruction. Imagine an alarm that is set with the intuitive motion of flipping the clock over. When the alarm is on, you can see the alarm time on the top of the clock. To turn off the alarm, you simply flip it over to hide alarm display. Out of sight, out of mind. The front face of the clock will always show the current time, and will flip to the correct orientation.
