The aim of the project is to have a Flexible studio of the future. Why flexible???In what way??? Every educational institute has students of varied learning and working styles and it is very important to be able to provide them with spaces which boosts their interest and potential of work. This thought formed the base of the concept leading us to monitor noise and number of people in each space and providing this information to students so that they are able to find the spot that will help them be most productive.

This beautiful sub-dermal "tattoo" is comprised of nanoparticle ink, an RFID chip and 'electronic skin,' consisting of 'sensors, transistors, frequency capacitors, wireless antennas and even solar cells to power the patch (1).'
The smart light and fan uses a photoresistor and temperature sensor to regulate the light output and the fan output. As the natural daylight in a room slowly starts to fade during dusk, the light gradually increases in brightness to keep the foot-candles consistent. Additionally, when the temperature reaches above a set temperature, the fan is activated until the temperature falls back below that temperature threshold.
