"So, you would love to potter around the garden, but realize that you do not have any kind of green fingers whatsoever? Fret not, as technology catches up with life, those who do not have green fingers can still obtain help in the form of Edyn, a smart garden system which will include a Wi-Fi-connected sensor and water valve. These happen to be powered by the sun, and sport a rechargeable lithium-polymer battery that gets things up and running whenever it is not obtaining juice from our solar system’s star.
The brainchild of Jason Aramburu, Edyn is a Kickstarter project that is slightly halfway past to its goal, being a Wi-Fi connected gardening system that intends to make an assessment on soil nutrition as well as water in the area based on real time data garnered. All that you need to do is to place it in the ground, and it will get to work right away, hoping that with such quantifiable data, you will be able to know just how much water (or less) that your plant needs in order to thrive.
Soil sensors are not new, but Edyn takes things up by a notch with the ultimate goal of developing a huge database on the environments in which certain plants will thrive in, and in due time, will be used to introduce an unprecedented era of sustainable gardening and farming.
