It's time for the Internet of Things (ioT) Thanksgiving Special. This time we are going to work on a special Do-It-Yourself project to create an Internet of Things temperature probe to connect your Turkey Day turkey to the Internet by writing a Thanksgiving Day Java Embedded app for your Raspberry Pi which will send out tweets as it cooks in your oven.

If you're vegetarian, don't worry, you can follow along and just run the simulation of the Turkey Tweeter, or better yet, try a tofu version of the Turkey Tweeter.

Here is the parts list:

 1 Vernier Go!Temp USB Temperature Probe
 1 Uncooked Turkey
 1 Raspberry Pi (not Pumpkin Pie)
 1 Roll thermal reflective tape
You can buy the Vernier Go!Temp USB Temperature Probe for $39 from here:http://www.vernier.com/products/sensors/temperature-sensors/go-temp/. And, you can get the thermal reflective tape from any auto parts store. (Don't tell them what you need it for. Say it's for rebuilding your V-8 engine in your Dodge Hemi. Avoids the need for a long explanation and sounds cooler...) <img src=" title=";-)" style="border: none;" />

The uncooked turkey can be found in your neighborhood grocery store. But, if you're making a vegetarian Tofurkey, you're on your own... The Java Embedded app will be the same, though (Java is vegan). <img src=" title=":-)" style="border: none;" />

So, grab all your parts and come back here for the next part of this project...
