When Adafruit announced their capacitive touchscreen shield, I knew I had to do something cool with it. I mocked up a design for the Château using an Atmega32u4, but once I saw this post on Hackaday, I quickly changed to the Teensy 3.1. Being able to update the display at a reasonable rate makes for a much more usable interface.

I decided to build the Reflow Château for the undergraduate ECE projects lab at my university because (A) that way I could get funding for it, (B) the existing toaster in the lab has to be manually operated and has literally blown up SMA electrolytic caps on a board of mine due to its poor temperature control, and (C) the man frowns upon the use of toasters in dorm rooms, so I needed a place to keep this thing anyway. The guy in charge of the lab requested two, so the Reflow Château actually has an identical twin.
