How many times you have felt guilty because you forgot to water your plant and it went dry? How about your plant reminding you that it needs water? Well, that has been arranged now; it is called Botanicalls and comes as a DIY kit.
Botanicalls Kits let plants reach out for human help! They offer a connection to your leafy pal via online Twitter status updates to your mobile phone. When your plant needs water, it will post to let you know, and send its thanks when you show it love. It comes as a kit so that you can hone your soldering skills (or teach someone else) while you build a line of communication between you and your houseplant! You can see the status updates of @pothos on its tweet page.
The DIY kit comes pre-programmed, but you can customize your own messages. You only have to supply the plant, network connection, ethernet cable and power outlet. The end product is a leaf-shaped electronic chip with two metal prongs that go into the plant’s soil.
