18 Awesome Projects of Grove Environmental Sensors

Here is a collection of projects using Grove environmental sensors. It is the most popular Grove category so far.The idea is to share development tools(even  with same project ideas) and creative applications. If you want to share your own, feel free to comment below. In most cases, these tutorials can be used in various sensors specially when the protocols are the same. Here are some key words for you to better navigate the projects.
