Arduino in the lab, example 9,345,234
For my own project, I happen to have a bunch of Arduino hardware. So, I threw together a quick solution based on Adafruit's thermistor tutorial (I have a bunch of thermistors sitting around). Here is Emily's setup, complete with masking tape junctions and protoboarded electronics :
A few hours later, and she's got a pretty good answer to one of science's oldest and most important questions : "Is this thing even working? WTF, man?" Here's the data collected at 1Hz with a one minute moving average :
I'm not sure what those wobbles around hour two are from. Hopefully someone just opened the door or something. Arduinos really are the Swiss Army Knife of the laboratory!
