Using the radioactive decay present in a banana to generate random numbers. Even if you don't appreciate the math/code/hardware behind it, you can appreciate the aesthetic of this Arduino-based generator and banana holder.
More complex (including code and math/probability), from the developer: https://www.valerionappi.it/brng-en/
@june I'm always more productive when I can generate a random number and not even have to leave my desk to get a snack. Lifehack!
@erinbee this is one of the easier products when it comes to judging its size from photos. Also hell of a cool project
@erinbee Very cool! A good thing 40K has such a long half-life of 1.25 bn years, so the operation of the BRNG isn’t limited by that, only by the life time of the banana. As the banana in the picture looks nearly ripe enough for eating, it is a good thing it is renewable resource. :–)
@erinbee Following the links lead to even more fantastic science projects!
> calculation of pi with the Monte Carlo method 😂
