EasyBloom Sensor Makes Sure Plants Thrive
October 28th, 2008 by Ariel Schwartz
Let’s face it: some of us just don’t have a green thumb. But the Plantsense EasyBloom Plant Sensor, released yesterday, makes gardening an equal-opportunity activity. The device is based on NASA technology used during the Mars Phoenix Mission, and can collect data on sunlight, soil moisture, and temperature. The information is used to determine the suitability of various locations for growing plants.
And just in case you need even more help with your budding plants, the EasyBloom can diagnose ailments and tell you if your plants need watering. The device also comes with detailed information on over 5,000 plants and allows you create a library of your favorites.
The reusable sensor costs $59.95. And who knows— maybe the EasyBloom will teach you a few things about gardening.
