sorry.. that was my plant

Posted by on February 25th, 2008 in communications, gardening, interfaces, presence

You’re sitting in a cafe or bar, enjoying a drink with your buddy when a text message comes through. You glance at the message, and excuse yourself to make a quick call. Seconds later you’re back to your conversation. “Sorry”, you say, “that was my plant”.

Scratch one more thing off the sci-fi future list. Thanks to the boffins at Botanicalls your plants can now Twitter you when they’re thristy!

A quick phone call back and they’re all watered again.

Now, no matter where you go, you can be there for your plants.

  1. Now if we can do something similar for pets, we’ll be home free.

  2. Why on earth would you make the call back to water the plant? If they can indicate they’re thirsty, why doesn’t that just trigger the watering mechanism?
