As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, Croatian computer scientist and hacker Denis Perisa Darkman now has a new brainchild. To be more specific, he has devised a system of sensors that can automatically close windows in a house as soon as the first drop of rain starts falling outside.
This idea came to him thanks to no less than his pet cat, who may get into bother when left alone at home.
When it comes to Denis Perisa Darkman’s cat-inspired idea, the blinds close on their own in the ground floor apartment if it starts to rain outside. Denis placed a small optical sensor on the roof of his building in the Sibenik neighbourhood Krvavice, where he lives, and that does the job, RTL news writes.
“When the first drop of rain falls down and hits the sensor, it sends out information that it is currently raining in this neighbourhood. The second phase takes place anywhere. So, I put that information publicly, online, so that everyone can use that information for their own projects,” said Denis Perisa Darkman, a computer scientist and hacker.
Denis’ cat helped him come to this idea, as he wanted to make sure his beloved pet was safe whenever he wasn’t home with him. Just before the sensor on the windows closes the blinds in case of rain, a sensor from inside the apartment shows whether or not his cat is inside or outside, as well.
