Cardano is virtual, there are no other ways to “physically feel” key metrics (day of epoch, price …) apart from using a phone or computer.
Leveraging IoT to have physical objects (ie. lights) express key metrics (day of epoch, price…) without the need for a phone or computer.
This is the total amount allocated to CardanoFeel (Cardano -> Real World)
“Cardano has become such an important part of my life that I wanted to find a way to feel its epoch rythm & price action without having to reach for my phone or computer - it had to be natural.”
Most of us would relate with this sentiment. We constantly check our phone/computer in order to keep track of the pay-day (new Epoch) or the price action of ADA or other tokens.
CardanoFeel is the solution! It is a bridge between Cardano and your physical world!
CardanoFeel is a novel concept where blockchain metrics are transposed into real world smart objects. By leveraging the IFTTT automation tool and a CardanoFeel twitter bot, you can connect your own IFTTT-compatible IoT devices. Your imagination becomes the limit! Play your favorite tune if the price of ADA goes over a certain threshold, turn on a light on the first day of an Epoch…
To kick start the project, 3 CardanoFeel lamp prototypes have been created.
For example, the “CardanoFeel Epoch 5” lamp is going to light up 1 light on day 1 of the Epoch, 2 bulbs on day 2, and so on.
The “CardanoFeel Trend” lamp is going to have different gradients of red when the price of ADA is down, green when up and blue on day 1 of a new Epoch.
Users will be able to use the twitter bot and CardanoFeel IFTTT Applets for free and connect their Philips Hue lamps.
Users will be able to purchase custom-made stickers for the CardanoFeel Trend lamps
Users who have a a Pro+ IFTTT paid plan are be able to create their own IFTTT applets with and fully customise the behaviour of their own devices (providing they are supported by IFTTT)
This solution is offering 2 main benefits:
This solution is helping users to tackle their phone/computer addiction.
Limited risks, a prototype is already being developed and tested
This is an entirely new project
