MEG is not just a product, it is a project of shared knowledge.
Thanks to the Arduino control system, MEG allows you to monitor and control all the key parameters for plant growth and to share the experience through an online platform.
MEG was conceived from the passion and initiative of D 'Alesio & Santoro , Specialized in the design of lighting, and Design Group Italy.
It is able to control all the fundamental parameters for plant growth, such as cycle light, ventilation, temperature, irrigation and soil pH.
One of MEG's key values is the custom-designed tunable spectrum of the LED lighting engine. A self-innovation project that combines engineering, photometric and electrical performance, industrial design and lighting.
Since MEG's architecture and platform are open-source, the whole world can help improve MEG's hardware and software thereby providing the driving force behind the knowledge acquisition and refinement of the platform.
MEG has won the competition to Wired Hack the Expo from May to October 2015 5 5 will be placed in subway stations of Milan, to demonstrate the potential of open-source systems and the free exchange of information that you may have on farming techniques artificial.
To raise the necessary funds for development, D'Alesio & Santoro have launched a crowdfunding, On the platform Eppela.
