Well I have been creating fun electronic projects for few years now. The hobby started during my bachelor’s program back in Mumbai, I create several electronic projects and won the electronics competitions, even though I was computer science major. Now that I finally have a space to work in, I’m thinking of devoting a small nook to be able to do electronic fun projects.


So what project would be I wanting to complete with my new electronics lab? Following is a short list -

It might a be cool project to use the Arduino, Electric Imp and the [COSM]( or [Carriots]( service to internet enable and control your [project]( > > > > #### Home Automation > > > > Integrate various sensors (door), speakers, and LAN. > >
