Digital Pot: Human-Plant Interface

Digital Pot: Human-Plant Interface
Dan Gould
  • 29 may 2008

This concept design by Junyi Heo mixes technology with nature, making it easier to care for your houseplants. The Digital Pot uses sensors to measure soil conditions, temperature, humidity, and water levels. An LCD screen then displays bold icons to tell you when to water the plant, or if the air temperature is not just right. If the plant gets over watered, the pot will automatically drain out the excess. The planter is powered by USB, which also transmits the plants data to your computer. Although a bit complex and over the top, a device like this could be a huge help for people lacking a green thumb.
