Having SmartTerra in my office playing the soothing sound of ocean waves and seeing a little droplet on a leaf after the rainfall helps improve my mood, and I hope it does the same for others. Additionally, not having to care for the plants is a huge bonus for me.

SmartTerra recently exceeded its funding goal of $50,000 on Kickstarter with 23 days remaining in the campaign and plans to host a Kickstarter live stream on February 22 at 1 p.m. EST. The maintenance-free smart terrarium allows users to enjoy custom ecosystems in their home or office without having to actually take care of them.
“Typical terrariums are beautiful and relaxing to look at, but, to me, they are just too static. I wanted to create a terrarium that can replicate the dynamic elements of nature--for example rain, lightning, and sound,” said SmartTerra creator Suri Mujjalintrakool. “Having SmartTerra in my office playing the soothing sound of ocean waves and seeing a little droplet on a leaf after the rainfall helps improve my mood, and I hope it does the same for others.

SmartTerra is easy to use: simply fill the water tray when the SmartTerra mobile application indicates and enjoy. SmartTerra’s high-intensity LED lights act as a substitute for sunlight, so there is no need to worry about plants getting enough light because the built-in clock tells SmartTerra when to turn on and simulate daylight, as well as when to turn off at night. SmartTerra’s rain system will also automatically water plants when the soil is detected to be dry.
SmartTerra is equipped with speakers, which allow users to listen to the natural sounds of the environment or the user’s favorite music via a Bluetooth connection. The SmartTerra sound modes included consist of ocean waves, rain, tropical rainforest, thunderstorm, beach soundscape and tranquility. The SmartTerra app allows users to check real-time data about their ecosystem, schedule sounds or music, set daily nature features and receive alerts when it is time to fill the water tray.
SmartTerra is currently available for pre-order on Kickstarter for a discounted price of $239 with plans to release stretch goals in the near future. For more information about the campaign, visit bit.ly/SmartTerraKS.
Suri Mujjalintrakool, the inventor of SmartTerra, remembers going to the zoo when he was young and was intrigued by the terrariums and reptile enclosures that simulated their natural environments. He believes typical terrariums are relaxing to look at, but are too static. Mujjalintrakool and his team want to create a terrarium that replicates the dynamic elements in nature with a sleek design and new approach to typical terrariums.
