Welcome to the latest update on our plastic scanner project! In this video, we’re happy to share some exciting developments that have been unfolding recently. From partnerships with local businesses to community-driven innovations, the plastic scanner project is making strides towards a more sustainable future.
Collaboration with a Secondhand Store:
We kick off the updates with a project that has been in the works for quite some time. We’re collaborating with a secondhand store in the Huague to address the issue of plastic waste. After some tests, we found that the development board can help them sort and recycle plastics efficiently. Stay tuned as we deploy our board equipped with PS plot software, allowing for a 3D plot to identify different types of plastics.
Handheld Plastic Scanner Prototype:
The next big update revolves around our handheld plastic scanner prototype. In the previous video, you might have noticed it connected via USB, lacking an on/off button or a rechargeable battery. Well, good news! We’ve addressed these issues, and now we have a truly handheld device. This means individuals in laser cutting facilities can easily navigate, scan plastics, and identify whether it’s safe to proceed. Offers have been sent out to various companies for potential integration into their workflows.
Moving on to the community aspect, we’re thrilled to see the enthusiasm and creativity of individuals like Loki Lawrence. Inspired by our latest development board, Loki is working on a circular PCB with sensor components, offering a different take on the plastic scanner. Additionally, we’ve connected with Kyle from Australia, who independently worked on the plastic scanner and achieved an impressive 90% accuracy in identifying multiple types of plastic. His findings are set to enhance our project significantly.
In conclusion, the plastic scanner project is not just a standalone initiative but a growing community effort. We believe in the power of shared knowledge, and these updates demonstrate how people are taking ownership of the project in various ways. As we continue to collaborate and receive valuable input from the community, the plastic scanner is evolving into a more hands-on, replicable tool for identifying different types of plastic. Thank you for joining us in this journey towards a more sustainable future, and stay tuned for more updates on our website. Together, we can make a difference
