The Internet Enabled Fishtank

Hello,
I imagine you’re here because you have heard about the internet enabled fishtank, the world’s most advanced talking aquarium.
I made it as a one-off project purely to push my technical skills to the limit and create something awesome. I had a vision and loads of crazy ideas of what I could make it do, some seemed way beyond my level of technical skill. I’m happy to say I proved myself wrong.
I’m really happy with how it turned out. Naturally there’s a few bits I’d like to neaten up or spend more time on, but overall it’s a finished project.

The project contains an Arduino Mega and a Raspberry Pi.
The source code is freely available in the below GIT repository, including the C++ arduino code and the PHP/JS code for the web interface.

If you would like more information on the project, if you’re planning something yourself or if you’d like to feature it in your blog or magazine, please get in touch using my contact form.
