For their Senior Design Project, four UConn electrical and computer engineering students, in collaboration with iDevices, modified a Keurig coffee maker to interact with an Android app using Bluetooth technology. Some of the mobile features they designed include: instructing it to brew on command, scheduling it to brew at a specified time, selecting a flavor of coffee, and selecting a volume to dispense.
