Tilt Out Window Garden

This drawbridge-style window garden, named Volet Végétal, comes to us from Paris-based design and architecture firm BarreauCharbonnet. As one of the selections from the “Jardin Jardin” design contest, they’ll be showing their prototype at le Jardin des Tuileries exhibition this summer. This video shows how they made this incredible garden:

Arduino controlled Greenhouse

So with this project published by Inventgeek it is finally shown that Arduino microcontroller boards are not limited to control small bots. The Arduino in this project controlles the growth of a lot of tomatos in a greenhouse. It is a nice idea to bring smart electronics into gardening and controlling the status of your seeds.
