Keeping up with watering your plants can be a challenge at times. Knowing whether you have enough water, too little or not enough is something that many wonder about. So how to you make sure that your plants are getting enough moisture in the soil. So often, I feel like I have a black thumb rather than a green one. There needs to be a technology solution to change my black thumb into a green one.
And that is coming from Parrot in the form of Flower Power which has sensors and the ability to communicate with your mobile devices over Bluetooth 4.0. The Flower Power lets your plant communicate with you and express what it needs. Not really, but the Flower Power device can provide you with a lot of information about your plant. This is accomplished with the app for iOS and Andriod where it will tell you the amount of sunlight the plant receives, the temperature where the plant is located, humidity and the salinity of the soil. All of these give you feedback as to the plant and what it may need more of. This is all high tech. And included with the app will be information about a large variety of plants and odds are, your plant will be included in the list. It does require a single AA battery to power the Flower Power device and that should last about 6 months.
There is no specific dates as to the arrival of the Flower Power from iRobot, but the speculation is that we should see it’s arrival within a few months. Unfortunately, there is no information from the company relating to pricing either, so we are in the dark until it gets closer to the official release of the Parrot Flower Power.
