Docomo’s Garden Sensor
Wireless technology measures and suggests the best possible growing conditions for plants.
Japanese mobile operator Docomo has created a device that can help gardeners care for their plants.
Straightforwardly named for its sole purpose, the Garden Sensor is inserted into the soil to measure sunlight and moisture levels. The information gathered is then sent to Docomo, where their gardening consultants will then offer expert advice to the user via e-mail on how to properly care for the plants.
Tentatively priced between 20 to 30 dollars, the Garden Sensor will be released on a soft run to the general public by 2011.
