Smart Fishtank

By mw12 | February 8, 2011

‘Palantir’ is our project to develop an Internet of Things enabled aquarium equipment monitor.

It connects a series of temperature, pressure and various other sensors to an WiFi enabled Arduino. The resulting data is forwarded to a remote server for processing, management and storage, with interfacing to the web and an Android app (with hopefully more to come!)

This project’s still very much ‘under development’ and probably will be for some time but a series of write-ups is in progress – we hope you find them interesting! The curious can also find some live data feeds here.

Escher lizard coasters

From an idea, to SVG, to Ponoko, to holding up a mug of tea and entertaining the mathematicians.

A very small taste of the maker revolution ;)

Here is a little story of our Escher lizards coasters.

This is the new home for our project writeups and peculiar ramblings. There’s a bit of a backlog of stuff which will be appearing over the next few weeks.

Expect a mixture of code, craft, and fish :)
