Synthesis is a crazy research about how it is possible
to grow a plant with colors emitted from four iPads.
Colors choose for my project
Pink is totally absorbed by the chloroplast and is equivalent to the most luminous moment of the day, which is noon.
Green is not absorbed by the plant,
it's like the night that is also useful to the plant for the calvin cycle.
The calvin cycle is a chemical reactions that convert carbon dioxide and other
compounds into glucose.
When you touch one of the iPad the colors change.
The order of the colors changing reproduce a 24 hours day.
It's a gradual gradient to Green - Pink - Green /
Night - Day - Night.
Software & Material
Local website using MAMP.
The project is developed with Node.js for the server
and the management of the websockets.
The flowerpot is made of fir wood with cutted angle. And it's four iPads Air.
