Baidu Kuaisou – Smart chopsticks

Baidu Kuaisou is a set of smart chopsticks that can detect if food is contaminated. By pairing the chopsticks with a phone/computer you can get information about the oil in the food, if it’s good or bad. There is also a light on each chopstick that flash in different colors depending on the results.


Project BadumTisch

In the course Ubiquitous computing my group and I worked on creating solutions that could create a better study environment in group activity rooms. The solutions used sensors to get information about the environment (no explicit user interaction was needed) and the data gathered was analysed by a computer. If the sensor data reached a threshold different actuators were activated. More info can be found on this website.


Devices created:

  • Smart temperature system including a smart fan.
  • Automatic room lighting.
  • Pen holder that sensed the weight of all pens and indicated which ones had sufficient ink left.

We also mad this (goofy) video to demonstrate our problems and the solutions:
