grüt

A gardening sensor kit for kids.

Grüt is a sensor kit that helps children grow their own crops, with sensors that measure conditions that are critically for a plant to grow well. The information is sent to an online platform that provides feedback to the children, in the form of a virtual avatar representing the plant. It allows children to grow their own crops in a fun and interactive way, and learn about the value of food as they grow it themselves.

Grüt was the result of a design project supported by Cisco and MediaLAB Amsterdam.
