We live in a world where anyone with an internet connection can learn anything. I love this ability and take full advantage of it. I'm currently learning Spanish and a bit about electronics. I've been interested in using custom made electronics for algae production for several years but mainly relied on a friend to do all of the work. We were able to develop some concepts as well as some hardware for an automated bioreactor. The main goal was to have small scale (20 L) experimental systems that were fully automated.
I never thought it would be possible, but I have learned enough about electronics to make a few gadgets that read temperature and light and log that to the COSM website. I did get help from friends on this, but did my fair share to get it working. I cant wait to see where this goes. One of the main things I'm learning is that anything is possible.
