Microsoft has a new initiative in the environmental field. Program called “Project Florence” will develop a technology that is claimed to make the plants “talk” with humans.
The project is led by Helene Steiner in Microsoft Research’s program Studio 99. Steiner also explains, it will create a technology that can “translate” the tension electrical and chemical properties of the plants in order to become a human-perceivable message.
Microsoft will create a capsule with a special sensor that will be connected to the computer. These capsules can save the plant. When someone wants to talk to existing plants in the capsule, they can type messages via computer.
He continued, when the message was sent from a computer software into the capsule, the message will be delivered to the plant-specific code is stored. If the plant wants to reply, the capsule will print (print) a couple of sentences that have been processed by the computer software.
Their goal invent this technology is simple, they want the plant could tell the owner or can also ask for help, as if doused or shortage of land.
Steiner also explained, they plan to create a special mood for plants. When the owner asked what he felt the plants, they can reciprocate in accordance with the conditions of his feelings. If less watered, he would surely respond with negative sentiment.
Although this project is still far from completed, Project Florence is entered into the main program that will be developed several Microsoft divisions. Looking ahead, Steiner and the Microsoft will further develop the Project Florence for treatment plants on a large scale.
