The Kettle Decides
Experiments on autonomous tea Kettle and when it turns itself on.
The Kettle experiment tracks the web browsers you are navigating, and when it sees many of the flagged " FB, Youtube, etc.." it sets the lever of the kettle off. Kettle then signals that the water has boiled so you can enjoy a cup of tea.
This project was done with an Arduino, an Xbee, a battery pack and a switch. The kettle becomes a part of the internet of things,, another household item looking after you.
