Horto domi: the Open Garden

As spring is coming and the weather is getting warmer, Will Bratton and Samuel Bagot from Texas are seeking founding via Kickstarter to this awsome open hardware project.

They have designed a half sphere green house with a controlled environment. Via a web interface moister and temperatures levels can be monitored and setting can changed. The controls are base on the Arduino open hardware platform and used a Ethernet shield to create connection to a web interface. This will allow a broader development community to create modification, such as automated opening of vents for natural ventilation.
