Projects are an integral part of the living, learning experience at Computer Science House. This is a small sample of notable projects that our members have created:
Drink and Snack are two of CSH's oldest projects. Networked vending machines allow members to order items from any internet browser using a credits system. A timer can also be specified to delay the release of a purchased item.
One Project Per Freshman looks to put the necessary tools in the hands of freshman to enable them to learn more about hardware electronics projects without a financial investment on their part. In its current form, incoming freshman members are given the choice between a Raspberry Pi or an Arduino with a starter kit to tinker with throughout the year.
Schedule Maker allows RIT students to plan their schedule for upcoming semesters. Users simply enter their course numbers and custom events and a list of all schedules that match their parameters will be shown. Because it is so easy and simple, Schedule Maker is now used by over 90% of RIT students.
Two CSH members built this arcade cabinet from scratch. It emulates many classic arcade games from varying consoles and supports multiplayer. A second cabinet featuring a custom-made platforming game was also built. Both machines, along with other arcade cabinets CSH has acquired, are housed in our Library.
InfoSys is a multi-purpose display board located in our User Center. It is capable of displaying weather statistics, custom messages, and even real-time player data from video games.
EventLCD is a project using an Arduino Ethernet and LCD character display to show upcoming events in a location from a shared Google Calendar.
