Received an email regarding this new kickstarter project being developed to help monitor hive health… If anything, kind of interesting to see the blending of technology and nature...

Cool. Thanks for sharing. I came across this remote beehive monitoring system out of the UK as well http://www.arnia.co.uk/ last winter when I began working on a DIY version myself. I started with a Raspberry Pi board and sensors. Haven't gotten very far yet -- it was a bit of a learning curve to get up to speed on the programming piece since I hadn't done anything like that before. Will probably pick the project up again next winter. If it works and others DIYers are interested, am happy to share what I learn.

That sounds like a worthy project! I've been curious about those Raspberry Pi's for years. Never could think of a project to use one for and give learning how a try. I have no skills in that department, but lots of curiosity. Keep us posted!
