The intelligent grill tong

During the second year of my high school I participated in the national innovation competition called Science Cup 2011 with two of my classmates. By incorporating 3 springs, 2 buttons, 5 LEDs, wire, batteries and an Arduino Mini into a commercially available grill tong we were able to measure the tenderness of a beef steak and display the results on a LED display. Since there is a well know relationship between changes in tenderness/hardness and how well cooked the meat is, we had invented a grill tong which could tell you whether your beef steak was rare, medium or well-done. We won the national final and received the award: national champions of innovations and science-creativity.
