Open Source Beehives Incorporate Smart Citizen Platform for #IoT Hive Monitoring #IoTuesday #CitizenScience

Over a year ago Open Source Beehives were crowdfunded on Indiegogo – see their successful campaign here. They’ve been moving forward with development ever since and while beehives and beehive designs are nothing new, the OSBeehives project does interestingly incorporate – the proper word is “adapt” – the Smart Citizen platform directly for beehive monitoring. Their hive designs include a more-common stack style design named Barcelona Warre Hive, and their most recent design the Colorado Top Bar – the video below contains a timelapse of the CNC routing of the latter hive style’s construction components along with assembly (pictured). The project website is here and complete, open-source documentation can be found here and here on GitHub.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
