This is a really interesting project that uses an Arduino to control 3 teakettles via a servo attached to the handles. I wonder if they would get along with the Cylon Coffee Pot?
My tea kettles were developed as my final piece for Mechatronics 470, Summer Quarter 2008.My goal was to create a completely absurd experience for one or more observers/users based on recasting a familiar household object in an unexpected and unpredictable light. Three whistling tea kettles were rigged with Servo motors and Infrared motion sensors to detect human motion in front of them.
