This modular box is a 3-tier set. Once on, it provides basic weather station information (temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure) but becomes a "Mood box", here a jukebox actually, when properly activated.
This project is a group project (FaB team) carried out during a French hybrid training program called "Fabrication numérique" (CNC machining and fabrication) - class of 2018, July.
This final group project involves some of the know-how acquired during the training program and seals the deal. It is complementary with the "Bentolux" project which should be documented and referenced soon on wikifab.org.
Instructions for the project were:
After some thought our group decided to create a musical tier - we called it "Mood box" - to complement the weather station using the base-tier and the LCD-tier.
Expected behavior is described here below.
When properly plugged in, the box can be started by using the switch on the front.
Starting the box triggers the following events:
If no other action is made right away, the box goes in "sleep mode".
In "sleep mode", temperature and humidity are displayed with a custom message on LCD screen.
These custom messages as well as the color set for both the LED-ring and LCD screen depend on current temperature:
La Mood Box est activée lorsque l'utilisateur appuie sur la barre de laiton située au sommet de la boîte (cette barre est une extension de la touche capacitive installée à l'intérieur de la boîte).
Cette activation est accompagnée d'une animation conjointe de la figurine, de l'anneau de LEDs et de l'écran LCD.Un nouvel appui déclenche le mode lecture.Un nouvel appui déclenche le mode lecture.
