After receiving a sturdy old fan from a friend who moved house this week, a question came to mind:
How might we help the elderly to stay independent and be able to do things like control the fan when it gets too hot?
We find it harder to operate remote controls and things with tiny buttons; and mobility may also be a greater challenge as we age.
In this experiment, we combine the power of a customized Google Assistant together with the power of Infrared (IR) Controllers. For other IR related experiments, you might be interested to check out A Motion Controlled TV Experiment
