Will the Gardens of the Future Cultivate Themselves?
Gardening becomes wired to the IoT, with Blossom, Edyn, and Bitponics featuring the greenest thumbs
When it comes to wired technology, nothing seems farther from the Internet than the family garden. After all, what do rosebushes and tomato plants have to do with electronics and Wi-Fi? But a variety of companies and devices exist to combine the age-old practice of gardening with the cutting edge of the Internet of Things. One such company is Blossom, providing a system to make garden irrigation more efficient through the use of technology.
Blossom enhances a home’s existing sprinkler system with a wireless controller that can be programmed through the accompanying app to create different zones within the yard.
