Bioo Pass, when Wi-Fi access is possible thanks to a plant

We have already told you, on several occasions, about how special and useful our green friends are, and you can find one of the many proofs about it here but now... if I told you that you can connect to the internet by simply bringing the phone next to a plant? Probably your face would be the same as when you opened the link above and discovered that plants are able to recharge smartphones using the process of photosynthesis.

Arkyne Technologies, a company specialized in innovation, renewable energy, telecommunication hardware and software development based in Barcelona, has developed Bioo Pass, a plant pot that provides a easy and fast way to connect your smartphone to a Wi-Fi network anywhere and at any time. How does it work? Simply putting inside the pot some water, soil and a plant, periodically taking care of it to keep it alive. The system uses the energy from the phone to provide the main Wi-Fi entrance preventing falls in current and making the working product from the first day ensuring a low consumption and zero emissions. The plant, during the photosynthesis process, expels the organic bacteria naturally produced which release electrons. These are stored and used later to turn on all the remaining components of the circuit.

The new technology is available for all new generation Android devices with NFC (Near Field Communication, a technology that provides two-way wireless connectivity) waiting that even Apple breakouts the option. How can you program it? It's pretty simple! Just open your phone, go inside the settings and look for the connections until the NFC option appears, type the correct router password and simply bring the phone close to the pot. Now anyone who brings their phone close will be automatically connected to the Wi-Fi network. Forget about asking for the Wi-Fi password at restaurants, hotels and even at your friends' houses and connect directly to the nature!
