GROWBOT, aka Robotany, is awake and farming


I publicly debuted the Growbot, a symbiotic aquarium and hydroponic garden that’s managed by a rudimentary AI robot, at the California Academy of Sciences Nightlife last week. Growbot is based on the Propeller chipset by Parallax and OSX (with a Playstation Eye camera), and can monitor Ph, lighting, temperature, watering, humidity, plant health and disease, feeding, draining, and more.

I’ll be putting the source code and schematics online here, so check back and Build It Yourself.
