Hammock

An IoT project to facilitate more efficient use of communal things at Junior. By simply opening a new tab on chrome, people at the studio can tell if the toilet, couch, workshop or hammock are occupied or not so they don't have to make multiple failed trips to use them.

One of my most favorite projects from my time at SCAD while I was pursuing an MFA in Industrial design.

Lucky recipients get a box filled with essentials that help students survive those grueling final weeks of the semester.
