we're making an online beer-vending machine for student's community thing... Users will swipe their magnetic card, and if beer is available, their account status will be checked through a simple http request, and a beer is released. Want another, swipe again.
So I guess the most complex part, until we know how the on-board controller of all the vending mechanisms work, will the http client with ethernet interface.
Does anybody have a good recommendation?
The AVRnet board?
