Coffee is a language in itself, and @Brett has created an interpreter the Gadgeteering way. I have a coffee roaster that I use in my hooded BBQ, it is basically a drum that holds the beans and agitates them with some fins inside it. It has a simple sliding door to let you get beans in and out. … read more

This is an interesting project shared by @123 showing how he replaced an analog clock on the dashboard of his car with our 1.8" display. I wonder what is next? Maybe adding the 7" display we have to replace the entire dashboard on his car. Here's my little project I wanted to share. My car … read more

Gadgeteer plug-and-play makes electronics enjoyable but what if you want to use a module that is not gadgeteer-compatible? So quickly add the Breakout Module but other turn the non-gadgeteer into a real gadgeteer module. In this example @Brett took a tech to speech module and then "gadgeteered" the … read more
