Children's room nightlight that has a separate control and light for each child. I wanted to have a fun tool to help my kids learn about what is possible with the hardware and software we have today. This helped them build their appreciate for what can be done today and got them to start dreaming about what can be done in the future. A few of their feature requests directly a result of this project:
-- It should see when our eyes are closed and automatically turn off our light.
-- It should slowly turn on and slowly turn off (implemented).
-- Daddy should be able to turn it on and off when he is traveling (implemented).
-- From the wife, I want to be able to disable it if the kids get annoying (implemented).
