TVShow S01E22 Idle Waste Alarm
18:40.34 365-15 OTC



A growing contradiction of the masses is concern for the environment while simultaneously being wasteful slobs. The belief that self matters veiled by an internet fog often perverts attention to atmospheric abuse and trivial consumption of resources that a human just 40 years ago would have milked for every drop.

One very aggravating all too frequent observation is the running-automobile-phone-user. A text or status update in your running parked car I would equate to treason. In reality, sheep and shepherd are the only true biological conditions of our species; so here is a first version shock blanket for your filthy habit.

Ideally, such a device may be wired and concealed, programmed by manufacturer (eh?!) or self prescribed to treat such a disability. In this particular model, an accelerometer affixed to an Arduino Nano reads variations of movement, accumulating time idling to a warning after 2 minutes, as to navigate around average traffic light pauses.

A pending model utilizing the Arduino MKR1000 stores the motion to idle ratio and warnings, then when near a known network, transmits the stored data to ThingSpeak for collection and analysis.

Stop being who you are now because is it not better in spite of your comforts.

Research

Idle Fuel Consumption
0.6L/HR per Liter Engine Displacement

Sample
Toyota Camry 2.5L 4CYL (#1 U.S. Mid-sized Sedan)
2.5 x 0.6 = 1.5 60 = 0.025L/M

Idle Pollution
9 gram(s) of toxins (ex. CO2) per 1 minute

Walmart Locations
United States 4,540
International 6,301
Sam's Club 647

Calculation (Muted Prognosis)
10 Idle Texters per Day per U.S. Walmart Parking Lot
10 x 4,540 = 45,400

45,400 x 9 = 408,600 Grams (901 Pounds) of Pollutants per Minute
408,600 x 5 Minutes Texting = 2,043,000 Grams (4,504 Pounds)
408,600 x 20 Minutes = 8,172,000 Grams (18,016 Pounds)

45,400 x 0.025 = 1,135 Liters (299.8 Gallons) per Minute
1,135 x 5 Minutes Texting = 5,675 Liters (1,499 Gallons)
1,135 x 20 Minutes = 22,700 Liters (5,997 Gallons)

TVShow S01E20 Arduino IoT Shower (w/ Arduino MKR1000)
06:50.21 347-15 OTC



Annotation; this was/is a first prototype.

Collaborating water and electricity seems as almost common sense as pairing a young Petit Chablis with a spaghetti alla vongole. As an alternative to the several thousand dollar pre-installed branded electronically controlled shower, a few attempts at creating a DIY automated shower have appeared over the years, though, applied with immense exchange of existing components and not best utilizing the newer era of IoT. Here, we have sympathetically married abundantly common pre-existing shower valves with the yet to be released Arduino MKR1000 to create an automated, connected and subsequently more efficient bathing experience.

Through either the Windows 10 or Android application, you may preset an optimal temperature and begin the shower. The MKR1000 will then monitor and regulate the temperature and shower valve to create a luxurious escapade in your dirt ass poor bath room. The amount of time and temperature variation will be sent in real time to ThingSpeak where it can be monitored for display and personal analysis of water consumption.

Additional notation; the popsicle sticks were a late second amendment to gain leverage.

Having discovered several spare Midichlorians in my liquor cabinet, I trained and applied them to opening a large cumbersome gate. The FORCE motion travels through my inner what-nots and is translated by the Pebble Classic accelerometer toggling a command sent to the (Particle) Cloud (City) which returns to the Particle Photon triggering a TIP120 to fire a button on an existing RF transceiver.

May the ridiculous hand gestures be with you, always.
