Botanical Kit Lets Plants Tweet When They Need Water
NYC-based researchers and innovators create a kit that monitors soil moisture level and automatically notifies plant owners over the social network.
Botonicalls, an organization focused on innovations in plant-to-human communications, has devoted their time to creating a wifi-enabled plant-care system. The claim:
The Botanicalls project is fundamentally about communication between plants and people. We are empowering both by inventing new avenues of interaction. Plants that might otherwise be neglected are given the ability to call and text message people to request assistance. People who are unsure of their ability to effectively care for growing things are given visual and aural clues using common human methods of communication.
