A smart wall of plants called Naava could have the ability to constantly provide fresh air

A few years ago, NASA conducted a study to see which plants had the capabilities of purifying air. Their clean air study revealed how certain plants naturally remove chemicals, preventing adverse health effects on humans. A company based in Finland utilized this research and took it one step further, creating a ‘smart’ wall of plants that does an excellent job at air purification. Naava developed this self-monitoring system to ensure that indoor air space is clean.

Naava utilizes modern design and the latest technologies to combine with the natural function of plants. These plants are smart enough to take care of themselves, tapping the benefits of AI to constantly clean the air. Humidity control is even an option. Each plant wall is equivalent to having thousands of regular indoor plants. Sensors in the wall monitor the whole operation system, adjusting different components as needed. The AI utilizes satellites weather data to aid in this programming.

The aesthetics and function of this ‘smart’ wall of plants works perfectly. Severe air pollution in countries such as China often keep residents indoors, but that does not necessarily mean the air inside is that much better. Innovations such as this system may prove to be vital as air pollution continues to worsen.
