It is almost the end of the year 2020. Hope everyone is safe and healthy.  As this 1 meter of pi project is near the end, I would like to make this project useful for other people. Our customers can be ast ...
We are already in the second half of the project and we want to see how we can help astronauts with this 1 meter of Pi project. So far, during this project, we realized that there are a couple of challenges in microgravity garden.   Let's recap a couple of challenges that we want to solve with this project!   1. Non self-pollinating plants need pollination --> how to monitor them and help pollination mechanically, bugs, or wind 2. We want to avoid bugs in space  --> Bug c ...

Set up Raspberry pi (my own raspberry pi 4 as I haven't received the kits from Element 14 yet - where are they now???). 2. Pick a couple of water bags to try hydroponic systems for 360 degree garden.   In my "Sustain the World" design challenge, I worked on the smart hydroponic system. My last blog post of Sustain the World is in this link: Measure Climate Change with Hydroponic System Blo ...
This is my first blog of 1 Meter Pi Challenge. I am excited about this opportunity because I would like to visit the outer space in my lifetime.   1 Meter Pi Challenge Project Concept Video I made a video about this challenge. Hope you can enjoy watching this ~ 1 minute video.     Prototype Concept The idea started by watching NASA videos - how do astronauts drink water under microgravity?   They use water bags to drink water. Then, I thought we can use those water bags t ...
