Have you ever heard that plants have feelings too? Ever wonder if they’re communicating with other plants? Well it turns out that they sort of are. The Phytl Signs EXPLORER is a wearable for plants that gives you some insight on what your house plants are talking about.
This is a weird little innovation that tracks what your plant is doing, not what the environment around your plant is doing. Plants are living things and emit teeny, tiny electrical signals. These signals are influenced by their environment and the device lets you see and hear them.
So no, it won’t translate into “Hey plant caregiver, what’s going on with you?” but it will let you track and compare signals to figure out if your plant is stressed, sick, or “happy”. The system works with a processor, a clip for the leaf, and stake for the ground. The collected data can be viewed with an App that is available across all platforms. This weird little bit of tech can help you really get into the mind of your plants if you’re into that sort of thing. Phytl Signs EXPLORER is being funded and you can grab one for $132.
