This project was an assignment for Lane Tech's Physical Computing Lab course and the theme of the assignment was Home Automation / IoT project.Inspiration/Beginning
The idea came to me because I was a very avid cereal eater, from Cinnamon Toast Crunch to Cheerios; I will eat anything cereal. However, being as lazy as I am sometimes I get too lazy to make food, even if it is just cereal. On top of being lazy I am broke so buying a cereal dispenser was out of the question .This is where the idea came from. Construction
In making this dispenser I took containers that I found around my house to see what could be used to make my dispenser and I came across these.
Afterwards I took the bottom of the Quakers cylinder and cut a hole for the cereal to come out. I glued Popsicle sticks to the bottom so that the servo could rest on it. Then I cut a piece of aluminum from a small tray into the shape of the hole and taped it to the servo head. so it would look like this.
I then cut the bottom of the other container and glued it to the bottom of the Quakers cylinder to raise the servo off the ground,
For improvements I would make a better stand, or make it mountable.
