PotatOS is a countdown timer, which can remind you to take a break from working / gaming on your computer. It is based on potato form of AI-based robotic facility control centre GLaDOS from Portal 2 game (which is one of my favourites).

The potato-like shell is made from papier-mache, electronics are based on Arduino Uno.

As for now PotatOS can work in two modes: countdown long or short intervals of time and then play alarm music (Still Alive song). If one don't turn timer off, it will waits a couple minutes and play music again.

I want to improve my project:
1. make it look more like original model;
2. program it to play wav files from SD card with GLaDOS quotes from game;
3. enable some sort of AI in it

Enjoy this project?

I don't know what's more delightful, using an actual potato as the mold for this, or seeing you soldering on the inside of a potato skin. This is great fun, I hope to see more as the project progresses!
