Flower Power by Parrot when it was shown for the first time during CES Unveiled. Connected wirelessly via Bluetooth Smart to the iPad, the device packs several sensors that can measure sunlight, humidity, temperature and fertilizer levels.
Users can monitor their plants from their tablets using the Flower Power application that features a database of over 6,000 plants. Finding the plant you own is easy even if you do not know its name, you can find it simply by looking in its color category. The device I saw at CES Unveiled was still a prototype, and although the device might be expected in Q2 2013, there was still no word on pricing.
I got a demo of the application (see video) and it seems that Monitoring the needs of your plants using Flower Power is super easy and fun. Parrot is famous for launching unusual devices that are well designed and fun to use (i.e. A.R. Drone), and the Flower Power is right in line with the company’s reputation.
