poki pi ilo sona. ni li tawa jan lili pi tomo sona.
The locker’s doors in my high school have two grids of 8x8 holes. I once saw a student that have put a few 5 mm LED through some of these holes, and it looked quite fun. I then had the idea to do something more complex based on that principle, and started working on my IntelliCasier. I won't write up all the making of the first prototype, I made a report which details everything.
I then installed this prototype 3 or 4 weeks at my high school, which drew attention of the students, who then gave me positive feedback on the idea. On the advice of my physics’ teacher, I signed up for the C. génial contest, but I was not selected to further participate in the contest. I was then encouraged to present my creation at the 2016 Young Inventors and Creators Show of Monts, a nice show that I’m used to visiting each year because my father’s students often showcase their school projects there.
The UTAI gives me the first prize, with 300 €, a cup and a gold medal of the Concours Lépine, along with a booth at the 2016 European Concours Lépine of Strasbourg.
For this contest, I’ve built a new prototype, more serious (no more games) and with a more consumer-oriented product.
A 3D printed white case covers an LCD display, a few buttons and a Wi-Fi microcontroller. This module can easily be fixed to any locker’s door with a few fixing holes.
