Growerbot is the world’s first social gardening assistant. It’s a tool that regulates how much light and moisture the plants in your garden receive, while also letting your friends know about what you’re growing and how well it’s doing. The device has a high-tech light sensor, a moisture probe, and temperature displays — and all of the data from those sensors will be streamed to other users who are participating in the community. By coupling the power of automation to keep food growing optimally with gamification to get you excited about gardening, the device promises to help you grow better food with less effort and more fun than ever before. Growerbot’s inventor, Luke Iseman, is currently raising funds for the project on Kickstarter.
