We wanted a way to make staying hydrated fun and we wanted to flex on our dehydrated peers.

What it does

When you drink from this cup, a moisture sensor detects the presence of water and rates the action based on how much water was consumed. An audio cue will play to confirm your water consumption and it will keep track of your progress in a time series graph.

How we built it

We used an arduino uno and python.

Challenges I ran into

We had issues with different OS (we developed in Linux, Windows and Chromeos) and library dependencies.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We submitted something

What I learned

We like to put great pressure on ourselves and try new hardware

What's next for Hydration Homie

We would push our data to the cloud
