When technology meets aquatic environments, something beautiful happens. Such is the case with this fully automated paludarium designed to simulate an Amazonian biotope with realistic environmental effects, so real that you might think it’s magic!
In fact, this amazing design powered by Raspberry Pi, is the brainchild of masterminds Poopi and Piter.
In case you were curious what one was, a paludarium is a type of vivarium, aquatic terrarium, or for all intents and purposes, an enclosure that incorporates both terrestrial and aquatic elements. Paludaria (or paludariums) usually consist of an enclosed container in which organisms specific to the biome being simulated are kept.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
