Brew coffee for Dad from anywhere! Coffee control connects any old coffee maker to the Internet, so that Dad can brew the perfect cup of joe, anytime.
Make your dumb coffee machine smart! Use littleBits to brew the perfect pot of joe anytime from anywhere.How would you like a warm cup of coffee waiting for you upon your arrival to the office. Simply use your phone to turn your coffee maker on as you are on your way. This project is also great for controlling your coffee machine from bed upon waking up ;).
How it works:When you press the button in Cloud Control [on your phone or computer], a signal is sent to the cloudBit, which triggers the IR transmitter. The IR transmitter sends a blast of infrared light which is picked up by the infrared sensor on the AC switch. Upon receiving an IR signal, the AC switch toggles any device that is plugged into it on or off. The bright LED acts as a visual indicator that your circuit triggered.
