PointAir - Smart devices on your hand

 PointAir is a WearOS 3 app that brings home automation to your hand. You can just point to a device and send a command to it. It works by using BLE advertisements of the hand's pointing vector through one BLE anchor device per room. Smart devices are configured per room and pointing vector. The anchors detect the room by rssi and the watch advertises the pointing vector.

Edifier R1280T Generic Remote Hack


Modded Edifier R1280T to change volume with Samsung or any other remote. I used an esp8266 which reads the IR command, and communicates with the onboard amplifier (TAS5713) through I2C in order to change the volume. There is a black tinted OLED in front of the speaker that lights up when volume changes. The ESP is also connected to home assistant through mqtt so it can generate other commands from IR remote button presses. Source code available as a platformio project, and 3D printed parts in .3mf format.
