Whoa! PiePal Lets You Order Dominos Pizza with the Push of a Button

Update: Piepal is buzzing! See the coverage on NBC, NPR x 2, CNET, FoxNews and more.

After building a series of Social Machines over the past few years (from unlocking GE fridges with Foursquare check-ins to weaponizing Twitter with a paintball gun, then destroying a bar with an internet connected baseball launcher) — we decided to take on a new challenge:

We handcrafted a RaspberryPi device that orders Dominos Pizza with the push of a button.

World, meet the PiePal, officially the easiest and fastest way to order a pizza. Sign Up to be a Beta Taster HERE.

The physical construction of the PiePal was designed using SketchUp and printed out using PLA on a MakerBot Replicator 2.

The internals are powered by a Raspberry Pi (of course!) & Arduino combination, allowing for finite control of the LEDs mounted internally and a fully realized user interface.

Like many of iSL’s Social Machines, the PiePal is powered completely by JavaScript, using  Node.js. Some tricky reverse-engineering allowed us to set up an API wrapper around Dominos’ amazing online ordering system, which handles everything from finding the closest store to tracking the status of each order.

Finally, we leveraged Google’s Coder library for the Raspberry Pi to create an intuitive setup experience that allows users to connect their wifi networks, Dominos accounts, and favorite pizzas for one-touch ordering.
