PROJECT: Batteryless E-paper Display
As technology advances, various energy harvesting methods have emerged, leading to a new era of batteryless sensors. The batteryless E-paper display proposed here is one such design. (Electronic paper, also known as electronic ink (e-ink) or intelligent paper, is a display device that mimics the appearance of ordinary ink on paper.) It might be surprising, but it is no longer considered rocket science or science fiction

CIRCUIT IDEA: Light Cum Room Freshener Module With Two Options
This light cum room freshener module offers two choices. In the first choice, the room freshener spray and a small LED light get activated for three to five seconds. In the second choice, where a switch is employed, the spray stops (after three to five seconds), but the LED continues to glow. The second choice can double up as a night bedside lamp cum room freshener with your favourite choice of scent

PROJECT: Smart Timer For Liquid Mosquito Repellents
As the hazards of mosquitoes are increasing day by day, the usage of liquid (electric) mosquito repellents is on the rise as well. These devices are widely employed for ensuring a good night’s sleep and are also commonly found in offices to enhance work environments. Most liquid mosquito repellents are ruggedly constructed and operate continuously once activated. But the continuous operation of these mosquito repellents causes the vapour content in the room to exponentially increase over time, which can cause harmful breathing effects and allergic reactions
