The growbotron, an iPhone powered farm. Not farmville.... a real farm.

I wanted to try my hand at indoor gardening, so I began the process and found so many repetitive tasks, measuring PH, watering, ensuring proper humidity, fans to cool the plants down, timers that need to be adjusted to control the amount of light.

So, like an good engineer, I made "an app for that", and so was born Growbotron!

The making of Crazyflie

The Crazyflie, a tiny quadrotor, was started in the fall 2009 as a competence development project in the Swedish consulting company Epsilon AB. This project was done during free-time with component cost handled by Epsilon. The first prototype flew about 6 moths later, but it wasn't in about an additional 6 months, in 2010, we finally decided to send a video of the Crazyflie to Hackaday.com and that’s when things really took off. After realising there was a big interest in a tiny quadrotor such as the Crazyflie we decided to make it available as a kit that could be manufactured and sold as an open source development platform.

We will take you through our developing journey, explain the technology, problems we have run in to, open software/hardware and last but not least, a flying demo.
