At the moment, Simone Giertz is my favorite maker on YouTube! She has many great projects, but the best one is her breakfast machine:
Breakfast is the meal of the day that I miss too often. And of course this is because I don’t have a smart robot that feeds me!
Skipping breakfast is bad and I needed a change. Getting up earlier in the morning and finally becoming the grown-up my ID tells me I am? Not going to happen. I’m self-aware enough to know I only make good decisions out of total desperation, and I wasn’t there yet.
This is what Simone writes in her article at Motherboard: http://motherboard.vice.com/read/how-to-build-a-robot-that-will-feed-you-breakfast
In this article, she gives us a step-by-step instruction that sounds too easy to build! I was part of the robOLED project some years ago. We created our own 3D-printed robotic arm and I wonder if we should make a breakfast machine with this arm.
