This is a very simple Arduino shield with only one purpose: to Serve as a timer for practicing the Pomodoro Technique®. If you’ve never heard of this technique, you might want to have a quick peak at their site before reading on.What follows is fairly long winded. If you’re not all that interested in the process, and just want some links to the Arduino sketch, schematics and board layout, skip to resources section at the end.
I wanted very simple project that could be completed in a short amount of time and I wanted it to be useful. Since I am sometimes prone to fits of procrastination, I am familiar with the Pomodoro Technique® and find it to be a good way to help get things done. In my environment, the prescribed tomato kitchen timer is too noisy. So, a specialized pomodoro timer to use at work makes for a great, simple project.
