Cooking can be hard. We've all been there. You're cooking your favorite dish and your phone rings or your neighbor knocks on the door, all of sudden because you're distracted, your food burns. Look no farther, the members behind a revolutionary new product, SouthainTemp have the solution. Our new product will detect the temperature of your food and if it gets to the right temperature, it will switch from a blue, cooler light to red light which signals that your food is ready.How Does it Work?
The science behind this new product is simple. SouthainTemp reads and displays the temperature at various different temperatures. How does this instrument work? Essentially, the Photon named Sensor gets activated when the DS18B20 Temperature Sensor on the Sensor breadboard detects some kind of temperature change. After the detection, it will send the information to the second photon called Display. The Display will display the temperature via the two lights, red and blue. The red one is for when the temperature goes over 90 degrees Fahrenheit while the blue one for anything below 90 degrees Fahrenheit. The degrees of the temperature can be changed depending on the food you are cooking.Improvement in the Future:
Since our product is in prototype stage, it can get improved. If given an opportunity, time, and money, this can be developed into a practical device. Some other ways, this can be improved is if in the future, it will message you when your food is heated up to the correct temperature. This way, you will know exactly when to turn off the stove.YouTube:
