Photosynthesis Camera Informs Gardeners If Their Plants Are Healthy

Photosynthesis Camera Informs Gardeners If Their Plants Are Healthy

Simple technology help everyone have a green thumb.

Lara Piras

Created by the Public Laboratory community, Infragram is a simple and cheap infrared camera that has the ability measure plant health.

Originally developed to monitor wetlands damages in the wake of the BP oil spill, its easy-to-modify open-source hardware & software makes it useful for gardeners, farmers, teachers and anyone interested in how plants grow and their lifecycles.

Consumers can use Infragram for a wide range of tasks such as generating open environmental data, teaching students about photosynthesis or simply monitoring your household plants.

The project is currently looking for backers via Kickstarter and at $35 it’s a steal for all the gardening enthusiasts out there.
