Connected Decor - Dish

Walnut, aluminum, micro-controller, LEDs, 5" diam x 3" h

Connected Decor is designed to complement an upscale contemporary home as a keys and change dish, but it also acts as a passive indicator of the owner's life online, connecting via Wi-Fi to IFTTT. The dish can alert users with a subtle signal that you can program with a reminder for when you're on the way out the door or just coming home.

I built this project with the talented Matt Richardson for Mashabel.

Mashable paired creators, equipped them with Intel-powered devices and gave them 16 days to build something special. Makers Matt Richardson and Ben Light create an Internet-connected change dish to add a sleek touch of smart technology to your home.
