A smartphone-controlled urban farm
Niwa: The world’s first smartphone- controlled plant growing system that enables you to grow the freshest, healthiest food on Earth.
Excerpt from their Kickstarter campaign web site:
Niwa is the culmination of two years of research and development, the result of many iterations, trials, and prototypes. It`s is a combination of hardware and software working together to take away the hassle of gardening as you know it. Niwa creates the perfect growing environment, waters and feeds your plants and allows you to control it all from your smartphone.
We`ve spent last 2 years working with farming experts to distill their knowledge into Niwa’s brain- a powerful microcontroller which has all the expertise of an experienced farmer. You don’t need to worry about how often to water your plants, if they’re warm enough, or if the humidity is optimal for their growth- Niwa knows.
Niwa uses a number of sensors and actuators to create a perfect environment for your plants to grow healthy and strong. She controls the temperature, humidity, and light cycles and her automated irrigation system will also water and feed your plants whenever they need it- giving you get better results and complete peace of mind.
