FemTech event: Hack an IKEA bear into Cyber Bear

FemTech DIKU event for excellent STX/HTX  students – learning how to create Internet-of-Things Interactive Product – the IoT enabled Cyber Bear

“It is 6:00 early Monday morning in November. The alarm goes off, and Emma reaches out under her pillow and grabs her CyberBear and pushes its paw, the lights flashes green and Emma turns around and sleeps 100 min longer.”

CyberBear is an IoT interactive product, which connects to the scheduling system Lectio, which is used by Danish STX/HTX students. If the first class on the particular day for the particular student is cancelled, CyberBear will respond by flashing green lights – and the STX/HTX student can sleep 100 min longer. If the class is not cancelled is will flash red and the student need to get up.
