With Herbot, anyone can grow anything, anywhere, anytime. It's as simple as that. Using precise sensors, climate-control technology, advanced hydroponics and intelligent growing algorithms, Herbot automates the process of growing fresh produce, medicinal herbs and flowers with the ease of pressing a button.

Each Herbot device leverages Artificial Intelligence to automate the plant cultivation process from seed to harvest. "With Herbot's automatic gardening capabilities, we hope to help those who might never have grown food before by giving them the resources and confidence to become urban farmers and join the growing movement for all-natural, hyper-local food," said Talha Sabri, CEO, farm 4.0.

Getting started with Herbot is easy. All you have to do is plug in the preseeded net pods, insert the nutrient solution, add some water to the hydroponic reservoir and select a plant algorithm using the simple-to-use, educational companion app: Herbot OS.

Three variations of Herbot are currently being made available via Kickstarter: the compact and affordable Herbot Mini, the sophisticated and high-precision Herbot Pro and Herbot Grande, with advanced growing technologies and an elongated growing space. Herbot's proprietary DIY "Seedling" Kits enable anyone with the desire to build their own automated hydroponic growing system to customize their device to meet the specifications they desire, leveraging pre-designed sensors, electronics and schematics.
