  1. I’ve got an Arduino with an ethernet shield wired up to my modified Pizzazz pizza maker so it tweets on Twitter (and sends me a text message) when my pizza is done cooking. You can find it on Twitter at @ThePizzazz. It’s not really necessary, but a fun learning project…and it’s sometimes useful if I have music playing, am in another room further away, or am outside. :-)

The Maker Shed is brought to you by Maker Media, the makers of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Faire, and much more.
