Brain Storming Time

Human recognizer

Introducing the winner! "Cooker Guardian"

Using the NCIR Unit to achieve temperature monitoring. When placed next to the cooktop, it can detect the temperature of the kitchen or flame. When the set temperature is exceeded, the Neopixel light bar will be illuminated for prompting. The threshold for monitoring the temperature can also be adjusted via the Angle Unit.

This hardcore team spent 3 minutes to design the brand logo, and the product structure made in only 30 minutes!
