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.
