[Andreas] might have created the final word lazy hacker accent: automatic sunglasses, or “Selfblending sunglasses” as he creatively titled his video. If you possibly can’t inform from the identify, these are glasses that you just by no means should take off. If the sunshine is dim, they transfer away out of your eyes. Going again outdoors to vibrant gentle? The glasses transfer to guard your eyes.
The glasses include a few micro servos which transfer tinted lenses towards or away from the person’s eyes. A side-mounted Arduino Uno reads a CdS cell gentle sensor and drives the servos. Why an Uno somewhat than a way more wearable Arduino Nano? It’s what [Andreas] had mendacity round.
Yes, an excellent portion of the enjoyable of this construct is [Andreas’] comedy. But one of the best half comes when he assessments the glasses out — in an precise automotive on the freeway. The glasses work higher than anticipated — transferring the lenses into and out of [Andreas] subject of view as he drives by way of tunnels. You can truly see how stunned [Andreas] is that it really works so effectively.
