During this Interactive Prototyping Project we developed a mobile web application which reads the coffee machine in the student’s coffee bar. Students and staff can now check whether the bar is open for service and if there’s coffee available from anywhere, on the way to university or from the 5th floor of the building.
The implementation was done from start to finish. From research to concept to prototyping and model-making.
The mobile app is connected to an Arduino Board via Ethernet and reads the different states of the coffee machine. In addition it also reads if the roll-up door to the coffee bar is open via magnet sensors.
The Arduino Board is mounted on the wall inside the coffee bar and indicates its on and off state with a red glowing heart. For that we laser-cutted the case out of two different types of acrylic resin which are intermateable.
