Finding the model in a new place

Locating the model in a new place is the first interaction that users will have with this design solution. It must be a clear interaction and user friendly.

My prototype makes use of particle photon and the tinker app. As mentioned in an earlier post, particle photon is an internet enabled arduino. When a user sends a signal to the particle via the tinker app, it activates the buzzer that is wired to it. This will be placed near the model, so that it can be found via an audio signal.

Screenshot of the app. When ‘D5’ is pressed, the digital signal is set to ‘HIGH’, sending a current to the buzzer and making it buzz.
Wiring of the particle. Buzzer is on the right and powered by pin D5.
