Botanicalls: DIY Arduino Based Kit
The Wired Store, as part of their green tech merchanitis, recently added the Botanicalls Twitter DIY kit, an arduino/x-port based DIY kit. Detailed instructions for building the twittering-plants seem to indicate this could easily be utilized in a high school grade 9-12, if not middle school, classroom. The x-port configuration and arduino code looks simple enough, not to mention at that age, most youth haven’t had the imagination bullied out of them yet, and the notion of building anthropomorphic capabilities into their world might help change the future a little bit. Or not.
