Physical Computing: SmartCafe
We designed and implemented a smart cafe that can receive signals from Gateways in Arduino, and make response to it. When "zombies" are approaching, it will show a message on LCD screen, making buzzing alert, red LED alert and attack the zombie with chocolate beans. Moreover, the burglar attacking system, which is activated after receiving attack signal, activates two traps in the front and the back of the house.
