Here's all you want to know about Google's Project Oasis
San Francisco: Google has come up with its latest experiment that aims to blend the natural world with the tech world by using AI to simulate real-world weather. Google has titled it 'Project Oasis'
The experimental project, as termed by Google as if now, has been designed by an Indian-origin inventor.
What is Project Oasis?
In simple definition, Project Oasis allows you to use Google Assistant to ask about the weather in various parts of the world.
You can ask Google Assistant things like, What's the weather like in India? and the little terrarium will mimic it with light, shooting mist, and even rain.
"Project Oasis" brings nature and technology together and lets users interact with them using voice. It is a self-sustaining plant ecosystem that reflects outside weather patterns by creating clouds, rain and light inside a box.
"You can talk to it to ask about weather or ask it to create certain conditions. It currently recreates rain, clouds and lighting in a self sufficient closed and living ecosystem," said Harpreet Sareen, the inventor of the project, in a video posted on the website.
Made with Google's tools such as Dialogflow and Cloud Pub/Sub, at the Google Creative Lab, "Project Oasis is self sufficient, closed ecosystem and a simple experiment to expand human conversation with technology and the natural world", said Sareen.
Users can build their own terrarium by visiting the official Project Oasis Github page.
