Twitter Messages Notify You When to Water Your Plants
Twitter is not just for friends anymore, but for your plants as well.
The Botanical Twitter Kit at Adafruit, allows you to communicate with your plant. While the conversation may not include any actual audible words, it still provides the message that the plant wants to deliver: ‘I am thirsty!’.
A sensor in the plant’s soil realizes when it needs watering and sendsÂ that message through an electricÂ circuitry. You will then receive a Twitter update mentioningÂ that the plant isÂ thirsty. Whether you rush home to make sure your plant is taken care of is entirelyÂ up to you.
I wonder if Twitter canÂ claimÂ that it can save lives now.
