While competing in TSA (technology student association) I was tasked to come up with a prototype for their biotech engineering competition. While we did not win anything, stupid presentation size limits, I want to continue to develop this project into something that can actually be used and donated to the science department at my school. In Its current form its not much, just a wooden box with a plexiglass lid and work gloves held on with little more than wood screws. However, I plan on vastly improving the design to a actual usable state.
Stemming from a school project, this project further develops the idea of a low cost and portable glovebox
An idea came to me. Using a teensy board and various environmental sensors, the inside of the box could be monitored. This monitoring could be used to help the user identify any threat posed by the sample in the box or just monitor the general conditions in the box such as temperature or humidity.
