A whimsical and modern sensor-based interpretation of the traditional winter advent calendar.
The Interactive Holiday Advent Calendar pays a whimsical and modern homage to the traditional advent calendar. It features twelve boxes that each contain a unique sensor. Each sensor must be discovered and activated to reveal a sweet treat behind each door.
The calendar was created using the Arduino hardware and platform. Twelve different sensors were connected to corresponding servo motors to create automated door hinges. The resulting effect is a calendar ""creature"" that behaves mysteriously and randomly to elicit curiosity and delight from its participating user."
