Community Hall of Fame Pick: Toilet Seat Alarm

Fixing bad habits to become a better hubby

February 23, 2015

 

Tim Cox wants to be a better husband, but he’s a got a bad habit. Like many men, Tim often forgets to be courteous to his spouse and leaves the toilet seat up after use. So Tim did what any great husband would do: he set up an Arduino-powered alarm to shame him when he forgets to drop the lid.

Upload an appropriate song to the MP3 Player (he uses “Rude” by Magic), connect a NAND (you can use the code he provided to turn your Arduino into a NAND), a light sensor & a pressure sensor. Place the circuit on top of the toilet with the pressure sensor propped up by the toilet seat & crank up the volume.

Here’s to being a better bae!
