Introduction

Paul's grandparents had a digital scale lying around that thy didn't need anymore. We decided to build something cool with it, but weren't sure what. After some thinking we decided to use it to control the chrome dino game that pops up, when there is no internet connection. The project turned out working and was successfully showcased at Streetlife and Groden.

Hardware

Components

  • the scale
  • HX711 ADC
  • WEMOS D1 mini (could be replaced by an arduino)
  • a computer
  • a button (for taring the scale)

Wiring

Software

scale to serial

data interpretation

Issues and possible Improvements

detect ducking

more resilient wiring
