Project: Wait a minute, haptics and door-locks (Sandbox Project)
Team: Individual
Timeframe: 1.5 days 2013
Toolkit: Arduino, CIID Music & Motors, Metalworking, Lasercutting, Woodworking


This is a concept about locking your front door when leaving home and how the haptics could be influenced to provide a greater value. The basic idea is if you have forgotten something inside, like keeping your stove on or not putting out your candles. The key will provide a certain type of feedback, striving to get back into the door.

1 st Hardware Sketch


The first prototype demonstrating the feedback when locking the door.


The second iteration


The second prototype made from a smoother plexi glas, both inserting and withdrawing the key is made possible thanks to the use of an electro-magnet.
