MiniLilly PCB

In the process of optimization of the MiniLilly, we designed a brand new PCB to be used as an Arduino shield to connect and control all the sensors and the RGB lighting system. PCB Design: Matteo Amela

Welcome MiniLilly, the smallest member of our Lillies family!

Welcome MiniLilly! With its 2.5 liters of micro-algae solution, it’s the smallest photobioreactor we ever made. It’s meant to be the low-cost good-looking solution for newbies interested in starting their home algae little farm :) More info on the MiniLilly webpage, stay tuned a DIY Kit will be released soon!

Waterlilly on Tinkerkit

Waterlillly has been published in the Tinkerkit project page. WayerLilly is a social creature: when people come close to her, she gets emotional and increases the algae biomass through the augmentation of light and CO2 released in the bio-solution. The electronics that make that happen are based on an Arduino board, and sensors and components … Continue reading
