Assignment topic

Develop a plan for dissemination of your final project Prepare drafts of your summary slide (presentation.png, 1920x1080) and video clip (presentation.mp4, 1080p HTML5, < ~minute, < ~10 MB) and put them in your root directory

Intellectual property

Licenses are one of the most important part of every invention. Mainly, two types of copyright licenses, which are involved in our program that are creative commons and MIT licenses. Creative common license is for creative works. It allows to add certain conditions to the open distribution of your work. For example, you can state if you allow the work to be modified, and if your work or the modified version can be used commercially. MIT licenses are meant for software works. It gives freedom to modify, distribute, sell or sublicense the software. However, the original license must be included in any derivative work. More importantly, my project is an awareness for sustainability and health concerns of present day world. Anyone can replicate and use my project if they found interest in my project. My plan is to use open licenses, following the Fablab model. I will use a MIT license for my code and Attribution, Noncommercial, ShareAlike, and Creative Commons licenses are for the rest of the work. Attribution means anybody can use my work while it is attributed to me, Noncommercial means the product and its derivatives cannot be sold and ShareAlike means derivative licenses cannot have proprietary licenses.

Develop a plan for dissemination of your final project

The motivation and idea of my final project is energy and health. To be fit and healthy, you need to be physically energetic. Consistent physical activity can help guard you from thoughtful diseases such as obesity, heart disease, cancer, mental illness, diabetes and arthritis. Riding your bicycle often is one of the finest ways to decrease your risk of health problems related with a deskbound lifestyle. Cycling is a healthy, low-impact workout that can be liked by people of all ages, from young children to older adults. It is also exciting, inexpensive and good for the environment. Another aspect of my project is Energy. Energy is an essential part of our daily lives. We use energy to heat and cool our homes, schools and businesses and so on. We use energy for lights and appliances. Energy makes our automobiles go, airplanes fly, boats sail, and machines run. All living things need energy too. Plants use light from the sun to grow. Animals and people eat the plants and use the energy that was stored. Food is fuel for our bodies’ energy needs like muscle power. We also use our bodies to make heat energy. When you have been running or working hard, your body produces heat energy. When you wear clothing like a jacket in the winter, it holds in that heat energy and keeps you warm. Also, the increasing population of low power electronic gadgets demands more and more energy. I want to club these all ideas to make a unique and easy solution which can afford to everyone. In my project, I integrate bicycling energy to store it for low power electronic gadgets. In addition to this, I will display the speed of the bicycle in the LCD panel. Hall sensor based magnetic switch used for the detection of speed of the bicycle. Moreover, the final project and its scope is demonstrated through the FabAcademy website through social medias and awareness program conducted in schools to promote childrens for their project with different verions of my final project.
