When I'm focused I tend to zone out and forget to take breaks, especially water breaks. I tried using apps to track my water intake but they are generally annoying and don't fit into my routines. I decided to hack a kitchen scale to track my water intake by measuring how much liquid I drink, how often I pick up the glass to drink, how much in each sip, etc.
I might throw in some NFC to track which of the vessels I'm using so I can skip dry measuring everything.

So I built this hardware ages ago but it was up to the software to do the heavy lifting. I finally decided to pick this up again after finally getting around to figuring out the software platform I was going to use for my projects (updates for my other project coming soon). I decided Node-Red was the most appropriate as the data flow paradigm is well suited for sensor based data feeds.
