The Smart Sourdough Starter

Doug's Features:

🥖 An ultrasonic sensor to measure height differences in your starter

🥖 A temperature and humidity sensor to track the starter's environment

🥖 Data-driven notifications alerting you when your starter is ready for feeding

🥖 Notifications of changes in your starter's environment

🥖 Integrated LCD screen displaying your starter's growth over a 24-hour period

🥖 LCD graph displaying when your starter doubles in size so you can plan your feeding schedule

I have been making bread for the past year, but have been nervous about Sourdough because it can die so easily. I started working on Doug so we can simplify all of the variables and provide notifications about what your sourdough needs and when it needs it.
