Thirst Reminder

Most of us tend to be forgetful of doing important tasks necessary for our livelihood… even simple things like taking a break or drinking water.

What if there is a way for us to be alerted to do the necessary?

What Will Happen

However, if you wish to continue, Press A and the Micro:bit will play a tone at the right intervals to remind you.
