Solar-Powered Gardening Tool Protects And Waters Your Plants

By Brian Spaen

Depending on how you approach it, gardening can be a fairly demanding hobby. After all, gardens often require daily upkeep, especially if the flowers or vegetables you're growing are particularly temperamental.  Thankfully, a new device, GardenSpace, not only takes over some of those responsibilities, but it runs on solar power. That's right: This robot provides an extra hand in the garden without batteries.

The self-titled company launched their new product on Kickstarter in October, and it’s going to be funded after blowing past the $25,000 goal with over three weeks to go. The robot watches over plants and takes care of their watering needs. It’s always on and features a full 360-degree swiveling camera.

In order to set things up, all that’s required is water supply and a Wi-Fi system. GardenSpace is controlled with a mobile app (iOS and Android), which is used to tell the product what’s growing in an already-planted garden and it’s an easy way to view the garden from its camera. This provides the automatic feature of knowing how each plant needs to be maintained.
