Know About The Functioning Of The Magic Wand
The magic wand used here is not about the magic but about the technology. So, let’s talk about the things that Sam used for making a magic wand. Sam didn’t have all the smart appliances at his home so using AI or Voice assistance was never going to work. However, using BlueTooth and coding, a wand can work.
So, Sam bought smart plugs and BlueTooth chips. Initially, he tried it on a small bulb and after doing coding as he waved the BlueTooth chip the bulb turned on. He went further and bought mini-plugs, circuits, and wood for the outer part.
Sam installed the circuit and carried out the coding part. As the coding part was a bit complicated he was not able to show it on his video but we got to know about the basic concept. He designed the wand in three segments, these segments of the wand were made by cutting the wood as planned.
Now, Sam had all the boxes tick, he was done with installing, coding, and making the wand. Now, all that Sam had to do was to assemble them. Sam was done with it and at midnight when he waved the wand; the lights turned off. The wand worked perfectly, Sam also waved the wand at different appliances and all functioned perfectly.
