  • 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


Remember that if you want to do something “open-source” you should not choose a Non-Commercial license, open source means that if someone wants to make their version of your project they should be allowed to make money out of it, but also that they need to choose the same license as you for their new version, so that it is open-source again.


 I hope that the modules I design can be commercialized for mass production in the future, because it has almost unlimited capacity for follow-up development.
 In terms of physical appearance, it can changes its appearance and its application scenarios. It can be a side table, a dinner table, even a small seat. I can find some furniture manufacturers to cooperate in this area. And with the electronic production inside of it makes it so special.
 In the aspect of program function expansion, because I equipped them with I2C communication protocol, each module can be independent and can communicate with each other, and can be developed with a lot of new functions. This can be handed over to some interface generation and communication platforms or developed by consumers themselves.
 Even continue its modular design concept to make it more powerful is a good choice. I can find some open source hardware manufacturers to cooperate with this.

I chose this license because I want to sell the project and will continue to use it. And I hope that the users in the future can continue to develop its potential price.

Summary slide

The main body of my final project was not completed, so I decided to put a sketch first and upload the official slide after the project was finished.

Video clip

I haven’t made the final video yet, but I have prepared a rundown for the coming video source material, so that once the short video and images is finished and the source material is collected, I can start the video production quickly.
