Even though they are not specifically for the cannabis space, we give a very honorable mention to the team at Isabel.io and their efforts to bringing hydroponics to the communities that need it most.
Ponos is a mobile app for hydroponics. ISABEL collaborated with the United Nations World Food Program and award-winning architect, Antonio Scarponi, residents of the Costa Azul community – to develop a mobile web platform that empowers residents of WFP countries to build and operate low-cost hydroponics systems. PONOS provides users illustrated and video tutorials for systems construction, communication channels to a global network of experts and a local trading system to enable users to develop an alternative source of income.
The World’s First Augmented Operating System.
PlantVision™ – By combining vision, environment, and plant data, we can now grow more with less using AI. The number of greenhouses currently on the planet will double in the next 5 years. Intelligent Automation for Controlled Environments is the future. By collaborating with the most innovative companies and organizations we can provide anyone in any language the power of a master grower.
