Assign Chores with an Arduino-Powered Roommate Management System

Alan Henry , Gawker Media

Asking roommates to do chores or pay their debts can get touchy and awkward, so creating a solid chore assignment and financial tracking system can save you from a silly passive aggressive fight. Instead of a boring white board though, you can make yours with an Arduino.

Chris at Rushpro's Own shared his design for such a system, and the video above should give you an idea of what it's capable of. He posted all of the software online, but you'll need to fend for yourself to get the hardware set up correctly. If you can hack it though, you can use the tiny portable computer to keep track of who last paid for groceries, and who needs to do the dishes, all without any awkwardness or hurt feelings. For more info and the source code, check out the source link.
