Raspberry Pi Microwave @Raspberry_Pi #raspberrypi

Nathan writes

A few months ago, I was inspired by this post on Reddit, titled: Food items should have QR codes that instruct the microwave exactly what to do. Like high for 2 minutes, let stand 1 minute, medium 1 minutes.. I thought this was a pretty cool idea, and that it would be a fun project for a Raspberry Pi. I agreed with the people who thought using UPC barcodes would be better, since products already have them, so I went with a barcode scanner + online product database.

It tweets too :)

  1. I can’t see any demo of someone talking to an appliance without thinking of the last part of the Carousel of Progress at Disney World:
