Upcycle an old coffee pot into an IoT ramen maker

Arduino TeamJuly 22nd, 2019

Ramen noodles can be a quick snack or meal, but per this IoT ramen maker by Clem Mayer, you don’t even have to run to the microwave to prepare them. 

His project used a vintage electric filter coffee machine to heat and dribble water into the waiting brick-o-food, then a stepper-driven pusher adds flavor powder. More seasoning can be dispensed via a servo-actuated syringe, and another stepper is used to stir everything.

The setup is controlled by a MKR WiFi 1010 board, giving Mayer the ability to start meals/mix in hot sauce from the convenience of his phone via a simple web app. Results are… edible-ish, but if you want to build your own, files and more info can be found here.

    Thanks for featuring my project!
    as mentioned the code and fabrication files (Stl and svg) are available for download for free!
    Also let me know what you think of it! Do you have ideas for your own automated food thingy!

    I also have t osay that in my opinion the MKR wifi 1010 is the easiest to work with in regards of networking, but of course I’m courious about the new Nano series!
