French company Parrot has unveiled a pair of smart devices aimed at making sure plants never wither and die.
The Parrot Pot and Parrot H20 are both equipped with sensors that measure the different parameters that participate in the growth of plants that are watching soil moisture, fertiliser, ambient temperature and light.
The Parrot Pot is an integrated solution, featuring a 2 litre water reserve around the sides and bottom of the pot and uses four separate spouts to irrigate your precious plant. If the water begins to run out, the Pot will even be able to go into crisis mode and use the minimum amount of water to keep your plant alive.
The Parrot H20 is a more retroactive solution and can be used with any plant. The device is stuck into the ground next to the plant and a water bottle ranging from 0.5 litres to 2 litres can be attached to offer up to three weeks of watering.
With both devices, you will need to tell the associated app what type of plant you want watered so it can decide how much of that good H20 to dispense as it will differ depending on whether you are watering a cactus or a phycus.
The two devices are still in the conceptual stage according to a Parrot executive who spoke to IBTimes UK in Las Vegas. He added the company had no details on pricing or when these products would be released beyond some time in 2015 but said it was considering whether to position them as consumer devices or as products for the horticulture industry.
With the milk-monitoring baby bottle also showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show, 2015 is set to be the year when everything becomes smart.
