Some of us are just after that perfect cereal pours every single morning. I have come up with a solution to address this very apparent breakfast problem by creating a device that dispenses the user-selected cereal-to-milk ratio. By simply dialling in the amount of milk you want with the potentiometer and placing the photoresistor at a set height, you can ensure your morning breakfast routine is a touch more efficient and tuned to the perfect amount!
