Plants invade Twitter!

Standard

botanicall- I want one!
This is great, why should the internet only be for humans?

With this kit you can put your favorite plant on the internet and allow it to express it’s inner feelings!! Cool or what?

How does it work?
The device detects the moisture levels of the plant’s soil and based on predefined levels will send a twitter to a specified Twitter account (for those who don’t already know twitter is a micro-blogging social network site- http://twitter.com)

A neat little package the kit plugs into your switch/router/hub to get onto the internet and send those all important tweets, add your mobile number to twitter and your plant now has the ability to send you an SMS when it’s thirsty! And I thought plants were boring…

I found a live example of the device in action http://twitter.com/pothos Cool!

At $149.00 it’s not that cheap but if you’re serious about your plants welfare, in my opinion it’s essential.

So where can you get one?
