Burglar's Doom - An Arduino Project

Keeping my blog up-to-date, while being busy with Uni and work is harder than I anticipated. So when I can squeeze in a little moment to share some stuff here, I'm always happy when there's a long overdue subject waiting to be covered! Today, I'm gonna share the result of a litte project with you that I built a few months ago during one of the courses in my minor, Mobile Life. It's centered around the Arduino and I built it together with my classmate. Sadly, because University failed to order the right sensors, none of our original ideas came to fruition. Instead, we decided to put together a burglary alarm that notifies the victim through Twitter. It's called.... Burglar's Doom!

Experimenting with Arduino

I just started with my minor, called Mobile Life, as part of my studies Computer Science. This course, taught by Rimmert Zelle, is all about Arduino & Ubiquitous Computing. The idea is, that by the end of the course we've developed a Proof of Concept utilizing the Arduino platform. The problem is, that me and my project teammate have too many ideas! So in this blog post I intend to share 3 ideas, and I hope readers will give their opinions and deliver some feedback on the proposals!
