Moxy: The Pedometer Pet

Meet Moxy, the pet that keeps you active!

For my Final Major Project at Bournemouth University I designed and created Moxy, a soft toy pedometer with an online game. Moxy is built with Photon, a Wi-Fi enabled microcontroller, and Johnny, the Node library that bring robotics to the web.

Clip the soft toy onto your bag or clothing and she will use the “Internet of Things” to monitor your activity. When it is sent to the web you will earn “Moxy Points.” These can then be used to play with Moxy through an online game. Keep her happy by earning points to play with her regularly. Beware, if you don’t keep her entertained she may fall asleep!
