Advances in physical computing are changing the way we interact with our environment. These changes can influence how we go about doing our day-to-day activities, such as food organization. To explore the connection between the physical world and the digital world, we focused on a single universal question to find a way to merge these two worlds more intuitively into everyday life.
We’ve all been there. You pour a bowl of cereal, or a cup of coffee. Go to the fridge. No milk. Maybe you’re already at the grocery store in the dairy aisle and wonder, “How much milk do I have left at home?” What if you could take a peek into your fridge anytime, anywhere?
To monitor the amount of the remaining milk, we attached a weight sensor to the bottom of a milk jug to send the weight values to your phone. When the milk reaches dangerously low levels, you get an alert on your phone reminding you to get milk while using your current location to map nearby grocery stores.
