As a bit of background I'm using a timer to moderate my meal consumption time and set a slower pace where I don't eat too fast, and take the time to savor and appreciate the flavors and textures. This has been especially helpful as I'm getting older and my metabolism is slowing down.
So this project is to create a physical timer device optimized for the way I need this timer to work. There will be an option for 10 minutes, 5 minutes, pausing and resetting. I've decided to try out the Adafruit feather form-factor, for a few reasons:
- I'm interested in trying lua for device scripting
- The feather platform includes built-in support for liPo battery use/charging
- It's a small initial size, and a good fit for what will be a rather simple device.
