It's time to weigh in on the latest project from Jen Foxbot!
SparkFun and Jen FoxBot are working together to create a series of citizen science-related tutorials geared toward beginners, as well as seasoned makers.
What does a baby elephant weigh? How much impact force does a jump have? How can you tell if a rain barrel is full without looking inside? Answer all these questions and more by building your very own Internet of Things industrial scale using the SparkFun OpenScale board! This project is intended for those with some experience using Arduino or other microcontrollers, and takes 2-3 hours to build. Check out the tutorial below!
And for all you visual learners, here's a video of the project in action:
Happy building, and let us know what you plan to use your scale for!
