DIY -Prototype- Arduino Timed USB Charger

During our seminar about arduino we had to invent a happy hack featuring arduino. We decided on making a device that would cut power from charging devices using some code for arduino. The Powerbuddy! This prototype doesnt actually charge devices as the arduino doesnt supply enough power, but might be very useful for someone capable with transistors to complete.
In this instructable you’ll learn how to make this prototype that will connect and disconnect charging devices.You will also learn how to setup a user interface for the timer using an OLED mini display!
WARNING: the device did not work for us. This is because we couldnt get our transistor to function like an electronic switch, but you might be able to get it to work.”
