In this instructable I will be showing you how to make your own Smart Contact Dispenser!

If you wear contacts then you are probably familiar with the boxes that they come in. Most people I know, including myself, use these boxes as permanent storage and we take out our contacts as needed every day. This resulted in a stack of boxes in my bathroom that was driving me crazy. I knew there had to be a better way to organize these contacts so I went searching on the internet. After only finding a contact storage dispenser that someone was trying to sell for $25, I designed up some basic ones which can be found here.

They worked pretty great, but I couldn’t help but feel annoyed that I had to pull each contact out individually so I looked into ways to have each contact automatically dispense into my hand. Since I had a ESP8266 laying around, I decided to order an OLED display so I could display the weather forecast while I am getting ready in the morning.
