chipKIT uC 32 and chipKIT Wifi shield winner

Posted on Thursday, September 6th, 2012 in contest by DP

Today we announce the winner of the chipKIT uC 32 and chipKIT Wifi shield! There were lots of great ideas, thanks for your submissions.

Congratulations to Tom, his idea for a nano-brewery data logger scored him a chipKIT uC 32 and chipKIT Wifi shield:

FREE BEER. I would like to build a data logging controller for my electric HERMS nanobrewery. Mash and liquor temperature will be subject to PID control using forks of Brett Beauregard’s PID and autotune libraries that I have ported to C. I am planning radio enabled thermometry using DS18B20/NRF2401 modules. A wifi connection would be ideal to log sensor data and actions directly to a website and tweet alerts when temperature/timer controls are reached or human intervention is required. Dangerous Prototypes personnel are welcome round for an ale or two. :)

Thank you to Microchip and Digilent for another free swag.

Thank you for participating, there were a bunch of great ideas. As always feel free to share your projects in the forum.
