Bench-Puter Personal Assistant: Appliance Controller
This is a quick project I made for bench-puter. I got pretty tired of having to unplug the hot glue gun (because the cord was buried under a bunch of crap) so decided to build something to help me out. An ATiny85 chip detects when a momentary button is pressed and turns a relay on. When the button is pressed again, it shuts the relay off. I have the relay setup so it turns on and off AC that goes to appliances. The button is mostly just a place holder for other things like voice control and TV remote control. Here are some pictures, a video, and the code. P.S. If anyone wants to try their hand at fixing the code, I would really appreciate it!
