From the Forums: Stepper Shield Lemonade Stand #arduino #lasers
jeff m has been getting help sorting out his Stepper Shields Lemonade Stand on the Adafruit Forums, and it looks like he is having a lot of fun with this project:
We have functioning hardware, and the Stepper Shields are stacked and work great. We can aim the laser anywhere on the arc of the lemonade conveyor. Our plan is for the customer to choose 3 different products, based on the time and sequence of the laser treatment (plain lemonade, basic laser treatment, and deluxe laser treatment). We will have the customer press 1 of three buttons to make that happen. We’ll figure that out.
…Also, note the inadvertent placement of Simon Monk’s arduino programming book. It is dog eared. If Simon Monk writes it, we will read it. We want a signed affidavit from Dr. Monk that we have created the best lemonade stand in the universe.
