Pet Food Dispenser featuring 4Duino-24

In this project, we will use a 4Duino and several IR sensors to create a simple pet food dispenser. 4Duino checks whether a food tray contains enough food or not. It is programmed to read IR values from each sensor. These values change depending on the amount of food in the container.  The feeding time can be set by the user via the graphical user interface. The device continuously checks the time from an N ...

Stock Monitoring featuring 4Duino-24

In this project, we will use several IR sensors to check if an item from an inventory box is present or not. This project makes use of a 4Duino-24 to check whether an item is present or missing from the inventory. The 4Duino uses its analog pins to read the values from each IR sensor. This reading value changes depending on whether or not the item is present. The 4Duino is set to send most recent status to ...

Toothbrushing Instructor

Kids just aren't huge fans of brushing their teeth. Not only are they not huge fans, they also are pretty bad at it. Teaching a young kid to brush their teeth is really hard. I created a little contraption that not only times them to make sure they brush for an entire two minutes, but also tells them what part of their mouth they should be brushing! Now kids can't claim they didn't know what to do, since th ...
