At the occasion of the BuildNight organized by instructables and MakeyMakey, as good swiss people, we decide to make an interactive Chocolate fondue.
The idea is to trigger something when you put the fork in the chocolate.
- Some chocolate
- Fruits (Banana, Apple, Pear, Pineapple, Strawberry, etc.)
- A pan
- Wooden spoon
- A conductive chocolate fountain
- Conductive forks (or make them with aluminium foils)
Step 1: Prepare the Fondue
Melt the butter and chocolate in the pan.
When it's fluide fill the fountain.
Wait until the fountain works properly.
Step 2: Connect the Cables
Connect the cables as the very complicate schematic above.
*Blue wire is the ground
Step 3: Software
Choose your favorite software.

Build your own with scratch (http://scratch.mit.edu/)
We've made a small program just to test the functionnalities and learn about scratch.
You can find the very simple soft here: http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/49909756/
Step 4: Enjoy!
