My Experiments:
  • Have done an Arduino program which interfaces with my Linux System and receives infrared signals from a Sony TV remote to control the system.
  • Have created an Arduino sketch that automatically senses the surrounding luminosity using an LDR and adjusts the brightness of the LED. It lights bright when the surrounding is dimmer and vice versa.
  • Have created a blog about Scouting and made a complete UI makeover to make it a responsive site under all device resolutions.
  • Have created a nifty script (Shell) to instantly convert pictures of all formats into the Open Webp format which is 40% lesser in size with the same quality.
  • Am creating a motion sensing web camera, that tracks my gestures to perform tasks in my computer using the Open Computer Vision library (OpenCV)
