Sprout was built and programed using an Arduino and a Raspberry Pi. The moisture, light and temperature sensors were hooked up to the Arduino. When these readings went above or below a threshold the data was translated into a specific kind of tweet and sent out to Sprout's twitter using the Raspberry Pi.
