Make a DIY tea robot with a Raspberry Pi and old CD drive

If you’ve been jealous of the tea robot that Jason and I wax poetic about but don’t have the budget or space for such a luxury, consider a DIY option. Using a Raspberry Pi mini computer and an old CD drive—and come on, who doesn’t have one of those lying around?—you can make your own. Github user achilikin has already done the heavy lifting of writing the code for you. (Although it looks like it dunks up and down for a set number of cycles which is just not kosher in my tea book.)
