As preparations begin for this weekend’s Global Makeathon, we thought we’d share some littleBits food-related projects. After all, the theme for our Makeathon is “making and munching”, and who doesn’t like munching – or making, for that matter!?
In his Cloud Cooking blog post, Chris shares how he came to cook sous vide eggs perfectly timed for his morning breakfast. No, his gadget does not look like the breakfast machine scene from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, but we wouldn’t mind if it did! A well placed piece of cardboard and a thick rubber band was all he needed to position the servo to press the ANOVO One’s force-sensitive touch screen.
The SnackBot is a line following, snack serving robot. This no programming required bot has wheels and a platform to hold your bowl of party mix. White poster board with a path of black electrical tape provide an ideal course for SnackBot to serve delicious snacks to your guests as they make their next invention.

Make fresh buttermilk every morning the Indian way! The ButterBot is powered by the cloudBit and a servo. The cloudBit turns on a servo to churn for 20 minutes every morning before breakfast.
This project uses the cloudBit and a servo to bitify a coffee grinder/brewer. Now it’s maker can fill it with beans before going to bed, and make coffee while still in bed.

Now that you’re hungry… We hope you have a great time making and munching with friends!
