Our product is a pointless light switch which mimics the classic pointless box novelty toy. Its purpose is to turn off a light switch that has been turned on.
How we did it
We used two Particle Photons. One is used to detect the light in the room with a photoresistor and the other is used to flip a light switch with a micro-servo motor. When the photoresistor detects the light, the first Photon sends an event to the cloud. The second Photon then retrieves the event from the cloud which tells the servo motor to flip the light switch off.
The first Photon is taped to a light fixture, with the photoresistor facing the lighbulb. The second Photon is adhered to a wall near the light switch, and the servo is mounted to the wall directly above the switch. The servo motor has a plastic arm on it just long enough to flip the switch.
The video below is a demonstration of how it works!
