A man named Ben Krasnow has been building a mixing robot to make chocolate chip cookies. It looks like he's solved a lot of the trickier issues surrounding the construction of a mixing robot. I'm going to try and reach out to him, since making people healthier seems like a much better use than making them chocolate chip cookies.

Somwhere I saw you guys talking about using Raspberry Pi or similar as processing unit.
Wouldn't be easier to use an Smartphone for this job and just output the data to the SoyBot via Bluetooth? We can cut a lot of costs.
Then we can integrate the app with SoyLog, tracking systems, show histories...
Input user data and updating software will be also way more easier.

Great Google Doc spreadsheet of Soylent, with Amazon sourcing per-item.

This link will show you what Soylent looks like visualized as a simple pie chart. It's pretty nifty, and I intend to use this as the basis for the SoyBot web UI:

Regarding the platform on which the first prototype will run, how does everyone feel about the Raspberry Pi? We could get the Model A (which runs for $25) and a $10 wifi dongle (Edimax EW-7811Un) for a total cost of $35 for the microcontroller bit. +Ante Finem , do you have any thoughts so far on a microcontroller?
