Project Description

 

Meditation is an extremely effective method to reduce stress – it is no wonder that IoT capabilities have already started to make their way into devices that enable meditation in a number of ways. This project implemented a guided mediation IoT device enabling “Singing Bowl Therapy”. The sound reverberating form a spinning bowl can be healing to both the mind and body. PSoC 6 and Wi-Fi were used to add intelligence to this almost ancient method of meditation. PSoC 6 drove the motor to spin the bowl, and Wi-Fi was used to connect to AWS IoT Core to store “tracks” – providing the user the ability to set the type of meditative song played, how long it played for, set a track to loop etc. On-board the PSoC 6 WiFi-BT Pioneer Kit used in this project is CapSense® capacitive-sensing buttons/sliders allowing the user to manipulate the track being played in different ways – start, slow, switch, etc.
