My team IoT Smackdown created the 'Click-o-Matic,' an internet-enabled instant voting meter. Users across the world could log on to a website and click as fast as they can on either 'A' or 'B' to move a real-world display needle to the left or right. When the needle went all the way to one side, an LED would display a series of either blue or green lights to indicate the that the voting was over and the winner had been chosen.
We used the Electric Imp with LED lights and a servo motor for the hardware. We used the PubNub API to sync data to and from the Electric Imp and across each web site instance.
I coded for the first half and got PubNub, JavaScript and the Electric Imp all talking to each other, then the rest of the team took over the coding. For the second half, I designed the Click-o-Meter with Adobe design tools, cardboard, and scissors, then created a slideshow in Google Slides and gave the final presentation.
