I'm working together with my wife. But sometimes one of us has an external appointment.
So, if one of us is thinking about the other, we want to show it together.

For this, I have made an Love Gauge for us.

It stands on our desktop, or you can carry it somewhere else, cause it has an WLAN module.

If one of us thinking of the other, you can open the website and move the pointer to an message. The pointer of the Love Gauge on the desktop is moving to the message, and you know the other is thinking of you.

If you want to build it you need an internetserver, an servo and an arduino with network shield. I used an reaDIYmate board with WLAN.

Step 1: design

I have made an sketch with CorelDraw for the wooden parts and the background for the remote control program.

We have engrave and cut the wooden parts with an laser.
I'm making one! Any suggested mods for this?
This is a very nice project! I have no excuses now to keep dragging my feet to get into Arduino... <br> <br>Congratulations !
That is so cute, also I figured you from Germany, my last name is german <br> meaning 2 liter beer mug
Then I replay &quot;Prost&quot; ;-)
No what's funny my first name means &quot;healer&quot;.
voted! <br>
Very fun! Do you have the translations of the different ranges? I only recognize "I Love You" :)
Left to right: <br> <br>I love you <br>I miss you <br>My heart for you <br>I'm thinking of you <br>I kiss you
Let me add the translations for the ones being curious: <br>&quot;Ich liebe Dich&quot; = I love you <br>&quot;Ich vermisse Dich&quot; = I miss you <br>&quot;Mein Herz f&uuml;r Dich&quot; = My heart for you <br>&quot;Ich denk an Dich&quot; = I'm thinking of you <br>&quot;ich k&uuml;ss dich&quot; = I kiss you <br>
How sweet!
