My next raspberry pi idea, need your thoughts
I've seen Dave akermans balloon project with raspberry pi, my idea is for a raspberry pi, gps module and mobile data to communicate with and possibly a short range radio to track the device when its time to retrieve it, all stuck in a vacuum flask or waterproof container with a silica salts bag to control condensation, drop it off at the start of a river and follow it. Batteries will be a concern so maybe something that can wake itself up on the hour, send its current position either by text, data or tweet and then power down to save battery life.
