Your Personal Plant Assistant

Meet Grovio, a smart and wireless assistant to add to your smart home. Using specialized sensors, Wi-Fi networks and a built-in thermometer, this white cylinder tracks the light, temperature and humidity of your surroundings, and informs you about it in real time. Did we already mention Grovio was developed for plants?

This Amazon Alexa for plants might be the Internet of Things' answer to watering your plants. The device allows you to monitor and water your green friends remotely, by linking it to your smartphone. The plant butler lets you even speak to your plants via the app, resulting in name-giving scenarios and receiving text messages from your plant. Nature finds a way. Welcome to the Internet of Plants.

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
