GROWISE / Smart Planter for Elderly


The Growise planter is designed to address a simple issue of the aging population. Aging can lead to many mental changes and may cause depression or the feeling of isolation. Psychologists believe in that growing plants can help them to have a better feeling about themselves, because they feel needed.
Growise brings them a novel and technological experience of growing plants at home. They can learn more and be aware of their progress. Also they can share it with the other users and have a personal and social experience. Using this technology they can grow in a wise way.
