This weekend I spend my time on electronics, with a specific goal in mind, automating the tracking of a fermentation vessel that I use for brewing. My starting point was a Wemos D1 mini lite, which is a cheap arduino compatible chip with wifi options.

When the time was right to tinker around, I thought of a dataset I've been collecting for some time now, which is the smart energy meter we have for our house. And with some tinkering to get Prophet to play nice with my containers and Jupyter I had my first prediction in a few minutes: This makes me wonder if I could just pay the predicted amount instead of a fixed fee.

And this time its easier as every, since I saved the After Effects project template of last year. Here's the video: Why shoot a picture everyday you might ask? Here's the answer!
