SmartGrill

December 2017
Personal project
Team of 2 Industrial Design students

For the birthday of a friend, we created an original gift. As he always eats a grilled cheese sandwich for breakfast, we decided to give his grill an upgrade. As a joke, we created a connected (IoT) grill. Using an app, the grill could be toggled on and off and an alarm can be set when the grill should turn on in the morning. Of course, this idea is just for fun and adding this ‘functionality’ to the product only makes the interaction more complicated for the user. Despite this fact, it was an educational project as we rapidly developed an (ionic) smartphone application that could control an ESP (and relay) using HTTP requests.
