From ordinary perspectives Agriculture is a traditional industry originated from thousand years ago. It’s probably hard to imagine there is any relationship happened between an iPhone and farming.
Whereas the project iFarm changes ordinary views. In this project SillyCube knows that US has been adopting new farming technologies due to the high labour cost. Hydroponics is one of the noteworthy technologies. Using nutrients from water, plants can be grown without soil healthily. In a controllable planting environment fertilizer will no longer be used to pollute the environment.
As the plants mainly rely on the nutrients from water, the sensor and control system are of importance to the plants’ health. Data like temperature, pH value, humidity need to be measured constantly. Users can put the iFarm sensor into the water. After pairing the control switch with our iFarm iphone app, it can be used to monitor plant status and other data. Data can be viewed on a smartphone anywhere, anytime.
Technology used: iPhone SDK, Wifi Transfer technology, electrode chemical sensor, embedded server insider control switch. Customers are welcomed to contact SillyCube to understand more.
The mobile app Developed by SillyCube Technology Ltd, cooperated with Tung Wah Group of Hospitals is featured by Mingpao, Singtao Daily and Hong Kong Economic Times.
SillyCube proudly developed the app to create values for the minority group in the society. The app can be used for communication using simple gestures. Powered by Android tablet, the app can form a sentence using flash cards representing verb, object, subject, etc. The sentence can be pronounced with “text-to-speech” technology in real time. The project is subsidized by the Queen Elizabeth Foundation for the Mentally Handicapped.
We are very honored to take a key role in the project.
