LighTelligence: A lighting system to optimize the circadian rhythms

LighTelligence is a lighting system that helps to provide the best type of light waves at specific times during the day for the user. Bright light around 3000 K is used to wake and for most daytime hours. A raspberry pi3 controls the timing system of a yellow and red light to help support melatonin production by blocking most harmful light waves two hours before bedtime.  The system consists of a desk top lamp, an orbital pendant chandelier, and a baseboard night light.

This is our last Sunday together as a group and we have been working very hard on finishing up our project. Nigel is almost done with our presentation video and it is looking good. David is almost done programming everything for its best quality. Laurynne and Michael are almost done making the 3D model for both of our projects. We've also worked on finishing our boxes for the bases of the desk lamp. It's time to wrap up and we have less than a month until EurekaFest!

Today we just watched a webinar on what we are to expect and what to bring for MIT. We also have been working on the box to glue together because we used the wrong glue. Nigel has been working on producing a video for MIT to show. We have continued to work on sustainability and we are deciding on whether we should go to MIT a few days earlier or not.

A few members of our group met during lunch today and found that we may have a slight issue in our power supply pack that powers the desk lamp. There might be a short but we are definently working on fixing it. A staff member from Andrews University visited us and we showed him what we are working on and told him our purpose and what we hope to achieve  and he was excited and impressed which is a good thing so that shows that we are on track.
