Bitponics is a successfully funded Kickstarter project that helps indoor growers take care of their plants. They make an internet-connected device that comes with various sensors (water and air temperature, humidity, brightness, and pH). It takes readings and uploads the data to your online account. If the sensor data deviates from your custom growing plan, Bitponics will help steer you back on track.

The folks who created Bitponics will be at Maker Faire New York, which is taking place September 29 and 30, and there will be over 500 exhibits showcasing creativity and innovation in technology, craft, science, fashion, art, food and more.
