These are the kinds of product ideas that I wish had come to me during my time at university. By taking product markets that are stagnant and totally refreshing them they are opened up to more potential consumers. This is Edyn, a new product from entrepreneur Jason Aramburu designed by Yves Bahar that aims to bring smart home technology to the garden.
Edyn monitors light, humidity, temperature, soil moisture, nutrients and waters plants when they are thirsty. It also connects to your mobile device via WIFI, giving remote information on your plants and veggies whilst offering tips on what to grow, dependant on condition of the soil it is planted in.
The form of the product, along with the friendly and intuitive app design offers a very approachable, modern take on gardening that might be the key to getting people growing more of their own vegetables.
