The remarkable technology consists of two pieces of kit: a pot and a cartridge. The former is made up of electronics, sensors, batteries, a pump and a water reservoir; while the latter includes seeds, nutrients and special software. Combined, they give the plant whatever it needs, whenever it needs it - whether that’s a bit more potassium or a dash more water. You’re not going to win any awards for your tomatoes but you are going to have a plant that’s not dead within a week.
Click & Grow was funded through Kickstarter and it’s alarmingly simple to use - check out the video for size. Different plants on offer range from chili to thyme, and painted nettle to basil, with the starter kits priced at US$79. The cost is the only drawback but at least you get to keep the pot and the electronics contained therien. Whenever you finish with one plant, you simply re-fill the pot with a new cartridge (plant) which cost US$19.99 each. The terminology might sound unfamiliar but think of its much like a printer except you can eat the goods - and it works when you need it to.
Life mastered by technology.
