First draft of the plant sensor. Hopefully it will be sent to pcb printing tonight. It still needs a current regulator and a dac. The circuit design is done by Dewald De Bruyn and is based on the Plant Spikerbox.

Thomas Paniagua have done some clustering with the 1000 data points on my gist. In summary what he did right now is extracted 3000 useful features from the data I gave him and used a visualization algorithm to figure out whether there were meaningful clusters in the data. According to him it turns out there are... and they are very clear. In the attached image you can see a few clusters after he have processed the data, where each region of clusters can be assigned to a plant action.
