Arduino Workshop | Making "Smart Tools"

On April 10th, we had an Arduino workshop and invited Yuta Sugiura from Keio University. The goal of the workshop was to build "smart tools" in just an hour.

Arduino Introduction
Students making their own "smart tools"

Testing servos
Connecting cables

Mounting circuits on the "smart tool"
At the end of the workshop, we had presentations.

Interactive washing puff - it measures the distance between the machine and a wall. It also measures worker stress by measuring the loudness of workers' voices.

Smart spray for grafitti artists - this enables the painter to create a brush-like feeling by controlling the discharge rate (depending on the distance between the wall and the spray).

Smart detergent dispenser - it detects dirt by checking the brightness of the wall.
