The element14 Community are pleased to introduce the “1 Meter Of Pi” Design Challenge, with Raspberry Pi.
As your rocket ship blasts into space, speeding to Mars, you have 1m3 of space to grow your food and nutrients for the journey. Resources are limited, and you need to make it work!
Luckily, your friends at the element14 Community have provided 20 successful applicants with a , a Pimoroni PIM487 Automation HAT, PIM486 Enviro HAT, and a PICO HAT Hacker PCB to help them prepare their 1m3 builds. You have 10 weeks to save your crew.
This could be the 1m3 of space on your rocket, or it could be used to feed the masses or in an urban setting to help feed the needy during a global disaster.
20 successful applicants will get the Challenge Kit free of charge to build and blog their project.
For a chance to win one of the prizes, you must blog about your build process, the final outcome of your challenge kit project, and keep your project within a VERY strict 1m3 of space. In space, no one can hear you scream ... about this constraint.
All projects will include a form of vertical, urban, or enclosed farming. Your aim is to add a twist in your project that will set it apart from the other competitors.
Example applications could include:
- Zero G Enclosure
- Entirely Self-contained System
- Edible Algae System
- Electronic Planting and Picking
- High Growth Density
- Robotic Pest Management
