Both started brainstorming on the idea and landed up finalizing their decision to make a wand for “Muggles”. (Muggles were the people in Harry Potter series who could not use magic)
The process was painful but they came up with a smart device.
It took one and half month to complete it and the wand actually functions.
All the 5 spells tested well and one of his friend Kira who herself is a huge Harry Potter fan tested its spells. The wand was also programmed to place a food delivery order and it did that very well.
Cantis (makes the target sing), Nox (turns off light), Silencio (silences the target), Accio (summons an object).
The components include wires, battery, switch, wifi, voice recognition module, mic, microcontroller, powerboost, vibrating motor (for signaling if the spell is recognized), etc.
The voice command feature was also tested. They connected it to wifi connected smart switches, which were connected to speakers/lamp and also delivery.com to summon food items.
