We can’t stop imagining a version of this project for kitchen uses! From Igor Fonseca Albuquerque on Hackster.io:
In this project I designed a smart bathroom scale, using some 3D printing, an ESP8266, IFTTT and Adafruit.IO. You can use this tutorial to practice several skills: 3d printing and laser cutting skills, soldering, electronics, programming, etc.On the next steps I’ll show you how I 3D printed it, wired the circuits, and made the code. In the end of this tutorial you’ll be ready to measure your weight and log it online!
Here at Adafruit, we sell all of these amazing components, but we couldn’t find a good way to interact with them over the internet. There are certainly a lot of great services out there for datalogging, or communicating with your microcontroller over the web, but these services are either too complicated to get started, or they aren’t particularly fun to use. So, we decided to experiment with our own system, and that is how Adafruit IO got started.
To make it easy for people to get started using Arduino or ESP8266 we have starter packs with just about everything you may want to connect to the internet, with known-working WiFi modules!
