|The Monthly Theme You Voted For: Home Automation|
|Project14 | Give Your Habitat a Personality Using Home Automation!|
The theme this month is Home Automation and its based on a suggestion from phoenixcomm . Anything goes as long as your project involves home automation. You can use this as an opportunity to give your habitat a personality by doing a project that involves artificial intelligence, machine learning, automated comfort control, security features, or voice assistance. Another source of inspiration for this theme comes from phoenixcomm 's idea to use this theme to pay homage to a habitat with a personality, S.A.R.A.H. (Self actuated Residential Automated Housing), from the 2016 show Eureka.
S.A.R.A.H. is a home with "artificial intelligence" that is built inside an abandoned fallout shelter. It utilizes parts of an existing parts of a military program called BRAD (Battle Reactive Automatic Defense), which like Joshua, aka WORP (War Operation Response Plan), in the 1983 movie War Games, is a supercomputer based on a two-dimensional war game.
S.A.R.A.H is powered by a radioisotope thermal nuclear generator. It was designed to be an "artificially intelligent" Home of the Future in 2016. It comes equip with a laser defense system, various airtight partitions, a filtered air intake, and has the ability to analyze airborne material. Among the perks that S.A.R.A.H. offers her guests are the ability to open and close sealed doors, control internal temperature, offers a really good massage, and provides a variety of drinks. Among her many talents is automating a perfectly poured pint of beer! Building a supercomputer with artificial intelligence is a definitely one way that you can build a home automation device that gives your habitat a personality. Both S.A.R.A.H. and Joshua are examples of supercomputers with personality, so is the supercomputer that Gus Gorman built in the 1983 film Superman 3.
