19. Invention, intellectual property and income¶
- Develop a plan for dissemination of your final project.
- Prepare drafts of your summary slide (presentation.png, 1920 x 1080) and video clip (presentation.mp4, 1080p HTML5, 1-minute max, 10 MB max) and put them in your root directory
I designed my project to be an easy entry project in ESP32 and in power management systems project for koodikärpät(koodikärpät.com , Iltalehti , Oulun ylioppilas lehti , Facebook page ,Oulu Lyhti ,instagram , a technology summer job for teenagers from 15 to 17 years old. Last year we had 290 summer jobbers. The teenagers made everything from flabby bird like-game in mobile phone, a VR zombie shooter game with 3D modeled and printed gun with working trigger, mag release, mag reload and working slide to Vive VR glove with positional and finger placement trakking . As good as Arduino is for learning coding microprocessors it is severy lacking multiple key features which limit heavily its usability in wilder projects. The real deal killer for today’s teenagers is the absence of WiFi. Everything needs to be easy, cheap and internet based. Otherwise, it is seen as “unnecessary, useless and pointless.” and not something that is worthy of anyone’s time. I hope that smartphone controlled connected animated lights would be more invigorating and not so pointless. The general idea is to be somewhat inspiring, hugely modular, cool looking, and easy to custom to your own likings. All parts are bog-standard and just bogged together. As this will be free and for everybody to use. And I will probably teach to 80 teenagers how to build and code their own version in next 2 to 3 months.

I will choose the CC license for my project and Apache for my coding part.
The finishing of the documentation has taken so much time I haven’t even started my final project. I will make a video, when it is ready, Right now it would be waste of time to edit a video(and there is nothing to film anyway) that will be overwritten in a couple of days.
