Biocall, New Way to Communicate with Plants

Take care of plants do not easy. Need diligence, patient, and attention. If owner forget to pour water, plants can be dead. If owner very busy, I suggest to not has plants.

But now, whether you busy or not, you still can has plants and take care of it. There is system which makes plants call, talk, and complaint if we forgot to pour water over it. Also plants can call and say thank you if we always take care it.

This system made by New York University students which joined in Botanicalls Projects.

With technology help, plants able to call owner if there are problems.

Technology which created by Botanicalls Projects basically translates plants communication protocol to form that understandable for human. The method is insert sensor which connected to microcontroller, then connected to telephone system. Sensor system sense plants condition, like soil humid, leaves condition, colors, and others. Microcontroller decides whether plants need to send message or not. If message decided to send, data sent through Asterisk, open source communication.
