LG will present at CES 2020 the first indoor gardening device with Wi-Fi. You will be able to grow your own vegetables and watch them on your mobile phone.
According to LG it will be a machine that looks like a refrigerator, like the left device in the photo. It will be able to grow lettuce, arugula, basil and other plants, combining outdoor conditions, LED indoor lighting, air circulation and fine-grained irrigation water control.
All you need to do is plant seeds in compost and peat and monitor your cultivation through a mobile app. According to LG, even a "complete beginner" could develop a garden with this device.
The device has enough space for 24 packages of seeds. LG stated that it is enough to satisfy a family of four, although it did not specify the criteria used. It can vary depending on how you grow up and how important meat plays in your diet.
LG did not say when the indoor gardening machine would be available or how much it would cost. It will, however, be made to be intended and compatible with other kitchen appliances of the company.
Logically, the device is intended for people who either can not have their own outdoor gardens, such as the residents of apartment buildings, or want to switch to a plant-based diet without the hassle of uprooting weeds or digging the soil.
