Although we use Free Hardware for video games or 3D Printing, the truth is that there are many purposes and utilities. One of the most amazing is the relationship with food because with little money and hardware great food or kitchen tools can be created.
A South African named Neil maree has created an almost perfect coffee roaster that makes a coffee roast to our liking, something important not only with a mobile application and an Arduino board.
Arduino Due will allow us to connect our mobile with the coffee roaster
The idea of this project is have a normal industrial coffee roaster to which an Arduino Due board is connected which connects with the Android application. Through the mobile applications we will mark the different elements and parameters of toasting. The Maree Coffee Roaster will start the coffee roasting process, without the need to do anything extra. Neil Maree not only has this roaster project but has also managed to create a coffee company where he applies his projects and coffee roasting.
Unfortunately plans and software for this project is not available, still, but it will be something that will finally appear. Meanwhile, for the most curious, it has been published an interview with pictures of the roaster in question as well as the roasting factory that Neil Maree owns.
This toaster is a good example of what can be done with an arduino board, but there are other projects such as a portable brewery that works thanks to an Arduino board or even the chocolate or food printers themselves that with an Arduino electronics we can have exclusive foods. In any case, Arduino boards are only limited by one thing: our imagination.
