We're actively working on auto-stop of the steam, based on a real temperature measurement. It's actually a conversation we're having on Diaspora right now.mooky wrote:I decided to leave my question up anyway because I guess what I meant was closed-loop temperature control & some way of of controlling how much microfoam is created (cappuccino vs heated milk). I was just curious if it was something you'd thought about, because - holy sh** - it seems like you've thought of everything else!
There are several projects, including a temp probe on the bottom of the jug, or in the jug, or an infrared thermometer, or a mini IR camera. We'll solve this one way or another, fairly soon.
Here's the research I did a year ago with an infrared thermometer, and a chart showing how it does track the in milk temperature, with a dependable temperature delta, so remote sensing would definitely work.
