"Learning how to problem-solve using algorithms and how technology works and how it's built is going to last a century at least."

This redditor created a world map clock #arduino

"This project has 3 modes which are selected via a button on the back. Time mode, colour mode and off. Time mode uses a sin4(x) function to select the brightness of the LEDs in that region of the world based on how much daylight they currently have. Colour mode oscillates through different colours to achieve a cool effect, and off is off. This project also incorporates a potentiometer which act as a brightness knob and a photosensor which dims the display when the lights are off so as to not be intrusive. The whole project is running off an Atmega328p with the arduino bootloader and programmed with the arduino IDE"

How cool is this!

"Meet Plantoid, a creepy-crawly cyborg recently pioneered by scientists at the Italian Institute of Technology in Genoa, Italy. It’s a sensor-loaded root-like bot that its creators have engineered to actually grow.

No, not to wage an android-apocalypse from the ground up. Rather, to better test soil for certain nutrient and other properties, including temperature, humidity, nitrates, phosphates, potassium and sodium."
