Agricultural research has improved the food choices we enjoy when we head to the supermarket. That research is also critical in parts of the world where just getting enough to eat is a daily challenge. Putting that research to workis the aim of a project at the University of Illinois to help third world farmers produce more by using smart phone technology.
Smart phones help farming instructors teach agriculture classes in remote areas. Simple animation allows the project to tailor the instruction by customizing it to the language of the region.
