The Good Morning
My device is a UFO shape that is small enough to put into your pillowcase. The goal of this device is to wake you up as pleasantly as possible. I personally hate waking up to the sound of my alarm, so I decided to make a device to help with the problem. I made this device by making a small motor, I actually soldered a piece of plastic to the end of the motor so that the device would shake. I then put the motor in-between two pieces of 3-D printed plastic. I then put it all together with rubber bands. After much trial and error, this was the best way to maximize the device's performance. The device goes off based on a timer. I coded the Arduino so that I could put in how long I want to sleep for and the device will wake me up at whatever time desired. To turn it off simply unplug it.
