Gardening links us back to the very dawn of humanity, from the days of scraping in the dirt with our hands but it can also be a look to the future. From ecologically sound watering solutions to artificially intelligent robotic aids, technology can make our lives easier and make us the envy of everyone.
Let The Robots Take Control
Robotics are becoming a big part of our everyday lives and when coupled with AI they can become extremely adaptable.
Whilst robotic lawn mowers have been around for a while now few are as smart or effective as the Husqvarna Automower. Elegantly styled and highly intelligent this machine looks more like a guard drone patrolling your lawn than an outdoor Romba.
Whilst the Automower isn’t a Terminator-esq guard drone the Scarecrow Motion Activated Animal Repellent is. Forget about making a classical scarecrow or even hanging up your dwindling supply of AOL CD-ROMs – this is the ultimate in plant protection.
The robot senses motion via a combination of heat and motion sensors, then it plays an alert sound to scare away the invader. If this little trick doesn’t work your trusty guard fires a 3 second jet of water at the source of the movement. The creators say the Scarecrow will work on everything from deer to skunk.
Water, Water Everywhere …
Remote sensing opens up a world of possibilities for gardeners. Remote temperature monitors allow you to know what the weather conditions are in your garden from anywhere in the world. With this information you can connect up to wirelessly activated sprinkler and watering systems to ensure that your garden never goes dry.
Taking this a step further the PlantLink system is a remote sensing device that can be inserted into the soil around your most prized plants, monitoring the dampness of the soil. These sensors report wirelessly to an alert system that can let you know when your pots or veg beds dry out.

The Sun goes down, your neighbors lower their voices, put on sweaters and light their fire pits. All around you everyone dreads the coming of the dark… whilst you rub your hands together with glee.

We live in the future now and it is a future filled with robots, remote sensing and automated systems. The best response you can have to the oncoming rush of technology is to embrace it and just sit back and catch a movie; probably best to avoid The Terminator though.
