Raspberry Pi-controlled brass bell for ultimate the wake-up call
This has to be the harshest thing to wake up to EVER!
Wake up, Boo
Therefore, ravenspired attached a bell to a servo motor, and the servo motor to a Raspberry Pi. Then they wrote Python code in Raspbian’s free IDE software Thonny that rings the bell when it’s time to get up.
“A while loop searches for what time it is and checks it against my alarm time. When the alarm is active, it sends commands to the servo to move.”
While I’d be concerned about how securely attached the heavy brass bell above my head is, this is still a fun project, and an inventive way to address a common problem.
And it’s a lot less painful than this…
I built an alarm clock that slapped me in the face with a rubber arm to wake me up.I built an alarm clock that wakes me up in the morning by slapping me in the face with a rubber arm.
Have you created a completely over-engineered solution for a common problem? Then we want to see it!
