Internet of Farming: Arduino-based, backyard aquaponics

A few years ago, Rik Kretzinger began to tinker with aquaponics (fishfarming + hydroponics), sensors and the open-source microcontroller Arduino to create an automated garden that could compete with commercial farms. Now his garden can send him tweets or Facebook updates if something is going wrong and he can adjust the water flow, pH and temperature from a smartphone. An automated garden! This is a fascinating video indeed.
