Miniature sensors in a greenhouse monitor the plants' environmental conditions. A software interface illustrates the changing levels of humidity, temperature and light. You can manipulate the symbols to control levels of mist, water and light in the enclosed environment. Even small changes can affect the overall ecosystem and the plants' growth.
