Controlling the christmas lights – Arduino

I am currently in the process of producing a research paper with my University lecturer, the focus of the paper is to find out if voice control is what people want in their homes. I am going to be conducting user research in the new year testing what people find easier and most enjoyable, controlling devices via a switch, hand gestures, or voice control.

I have just finished building the device which will test the ‘switch’ part of the experiment. Users will have a a group of switches in front of them which they will press to turn devices off and on in the room. The video shows how this will work.
