    23rd April 2014 17:40

    You know when a photo has that fuzzy background thing going on and the subject is sharp while the rest looks all dreamy?

    My Fish Just Sent Me A Text Message

    23rd April 2014 16:14

    The Internet of Things makes it easy for us to monitor our homes. Today I’m taking that concept one step further—getting our homes to report back to us.  In early March, I wrote about using Raspberry Pi to quantify my fish tank—in short, I taught the $35 single-board computer to monitor the temperature of my home aquarium no matter where I was in the apartment.
