SC² the ‘Smart Cup Coaster’ Notifies You When Your Coffee is Going Cold
I tend to drink my coffee almost as soon as the drip is done (my ritual is a pour-over through a metal filter with water at 190°F) but I understand how some like to wait and let their coffee cool down a bit – but then if you wait too long…
You make yourself a nice hot cup of coffee, you take it with you to your desk, but since it is too hot to drink it immediately, you leave it there and continue with your work – next time you remember it, the coffee is already cold.
If you had a smart coaster to place your cup on, a coaster monitoring the temperature and notifying you before it gets too cold …
SC² – Smart Cup Coaster
The idea of a
connected device to place a cup of coffee (or tea) on with
contact-less temperature measurement and
smart monitoring of cool down rate;
Configurable via web interface and providing
notification via email or text message before the beverage gets to cold;
Based on an ESP8226 board (i.e. SparkFun ESP8266 Thing – Dev Board);
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
