While we wait for the judges to deliberate on things, I wanted to reflect on the project and give some updates on what I've been doing since the contest officially closed.   Ways to improve: Here are some ideas I've had or have been suggested by comments or people I discussed the project with -   Fire Extinguisher - My first  post had a comment about adding a fire extinguisher - I think this is a very cool idea but would be a much longer term undertanking. I would need to do a lo ...

I set out to build a smart shelf as my project. The idea was to have a shelf which would measure the weight and recognize the items on it, and then send that data online where it could be viewed either by a smartphone or a computer. I had past experience working with Arduinos but never really had any project with a Rasp ...
First I’ll give the hardware update and then the electrical.   For this project to work right, I need to be able to roll the dough out on the pan and have it come off well when it’s done cooking. So I went to the store and bought a non-stick mat. The dough rolled out really well on this mat, but the mat did not stay on the pan. So I made my own pan out of a galvanized steel sheet. I cut the mat a little shorter than 11”, cut off the corners of the steel sheet, and bent th ...
