Are you a Japanese vegan gardener? Well good for you, because DoCoMo has just released the perfect new device for you.
So, this thing is actually called a Garden Sensor. It will ensure that your veggies will turn out perfect. It’s a tiny sensor stick that you can insert into the soil, right next to your precious veggies. It has the ability to measure moisture levels, as well as sunlight.This data is then sent wirelessly to DoCoMo, where their gardening experts will give you expert advice on how to get the best out of your garden. They will communicate with you via email, phone, or text messages. The diagram below makes it all look much more complicated than it is. Perhaps that’s because it’s in Japanese.
These sensors, which are priced between $20 to $30, will be deployed on a test basis in Japan in 2011.
