You know when you brew tea and you never know when it's a good temperature to drink? Wait too long to drink it and it's too cold. Drink too soon and you burn your mouth. What a minor dilemma. Well, this project was a silly solution.
- mugbug was a simple program that ran on an a arduino with a LED ring, a waterproof thermometer, and a potentiometer.
- mugbug would rest on the edge of your mug, displaying the time remaining until the optimal temperature to drink, adjustable by the user with the dial in the center.
- when mugbug knows it's OK to drink, the lights flash and make a rainbow pattern.
