Video: Dirt is boring. Soil isn't fun. Who cares what's happening down there. So I thought. Josh Williams changed my mind with his SoilCam, a waterproof scanner that's controlled by a Raspberry Pi. He places it in the dirt so we can see everything that's happening underground. It's so alive. It's a whole different world down there. Following the growth of roots is actually pretty captivating, seeing leaves and flowers decompose is weirdly fun and watching all the bugs — so many bugs — pop up out of no where is neat. Please forgive me for making you listen to the music in the video, though.
