Open Source Hot Plate Stirrer with ESP8266 Wireless – Video Walkthrough | #chemistry

OK this is all kinds of amazing. We don’t get to feature as many chemistry projects here as we would like – and especially not proclaimed open-source ones like this. We look forward to seeing this project by mux develop even further – what started with an inspiring ‘feature requests‘ thread on the Science Madness forum has lead to this iteration of the hot plate stirrer project, complete with ESP8266, custom milled enclosure, and variable DC power input. Pretty snazzy! The video below is very thorough and mux walks through all the sub-components and features, including the motivation behind certain design features as well as what to improve upon. And again, this all started with a help request. So cool!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Interesting project. I experimented with a rotating magnetic field but I was using 8 coils, not 4. I could never get the magnetic strength strong enough to reliably spin a 10mm X 50mm at the speed I wanted and I finally settled on a pair of 0.75″ X 0.75″ X 0.25″ super magnets mounted on a 120mm server fan. We still produce the Black MAXX stir plates based on this design today. I look foreword to see what you finally come up with.
