TCup is a device+app that helps you improve the quality of your tea consumption, by adapting the infusion process accordingly to the type of tea, and by notifying you when your cup of tea has arrived to your favorite drinking temperature.

We have developed this project during Intel IoT Roadshow in Paris, in September 13th, 2015. Our team is composed of Kevin Lefevre (iPhone development) and Adrien Joly (Node.js development).

Step 1: Assemble the Hardware

You will need the following hardware:

After connecting and configuring the Edison board so that it connects to your Wifi network, execute the following steps:

  1. Plug the shield on the Edison board
  2. Plug the temperature sensors to A0
  3. Plug the LCD display to the first I2C
  4. Don't forget to set the shield board to 5 volts, for the LCD to work properly.

Now that the hardware is set up, let's push some code to give it some life!

<p>Pretty cool idea. Thanks for sharing how you made this!</p>
<p>Thank you for your interest, seamster!</p>
<p>Incredible work</p>
I have a question, hope to see your reply :D<br>I really dont know why you have to use Edison board while the cost is quite high...did you try another kind of board like that
We used Edison because it was offered to us during the hackathon :-)
<p>Nice idea! I did something pretty similar to this before, I guess great minds think alike. Great job!!</p>
<p>Great idea</p>
