Things used in this project

Hardware components

Arduino UNO
Arduino UNO
Any Arduino will work as long as it has 10 digital pins, power,
ESP8266 ESP-01
Espressif ESP8266 ESP-01
For use if you are using an Arduino (assuming it does not have networking built in)
Intel Centrino
Any PCIe half card will work. This one can be found online easily and is the most optimized for Galileo
Any HX711 Will work. I picked this one up because the ratings seemed fine and the price was good.
RFID MiFare for Arduino
Any RFID chip reader will do
Load Cell
As with others, any will work, as long as you know how to wire/program with it
Amazon Echo
Amazon Alexa Amazon Echo
Can be substituted for Echo dot, as well

Software apps and online services
