Finger Jammers’ Team: Beatrice,Rafael, Johan, Junie
Lost keys are really such a hassle. Many of us have been through the struggle of simply losing or forgetting your keys when you need them the most. There are also people out there who have arthritis or Alzheimer’s Disease, which makes it harder for them to have keys since they either hurt them, or won’t even remember where the keys are to begin with.
Our project will essentially be aiding those who tend to lose their keys, have arthritis or Alzheimer’s Disease, and who want a safe with an extra level of security. The safe will potentially make it easier to grab keep-sakes and special items without having to go through the struggle of dealing with forgotten and/or lost keys.
Those who want a secure safe without the hassle of having a key, and can easily open and close the safe effortlessly.
Rechargeable Lithium Battery
Electromagnetic Locking Mechanism
Electronics- To assemble the locking mechanism
Fabrication- To build the safe
Coding with Arduino- To program the fingerprint sensor
Product/Idea 1- Ardunio finger print scanner door lock~ Uses a fingerprint scanner to unlock a door.
Product/Idea 2- Iphone 6s~ Uses a fingerprint sensor to unlock phone .
Product/Idea3- Stalwart fingerprint and digital steel safe~ Uses figerprint scanner to unlock safe.
Our First Rapid Prototype:
