I've started work on the new prototype. Key changes:

  1. Moving from Arduino 101 board to Adafruit Feathers (RFM and ESP8266). The feathers (and their associated wings) have a smaller form factor and lower power requirements (3.3v v 5.0 volts).
  2. Adding a physical compost bin
  3. Adding a physical display (a TFT screen). I may still use a web app/bluetooth phone app, but I thought seeing the feedback as easy as possible made the most sense.
