Despite a few bugs the project was able to make it all the way to the expert round and demonstrate functionality. It can send a text after it has registered the equivalent of “being finished”. The functionality only served as a “proof of concept” because I could not bring a washing machine to class. The next stage would be to replace the button with a correlation to the actual systems within the washing machine (i.e. the on/off dial) to allow the user to not even think about the washer. This way, I would never forget to turn it on.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
