New Botanicalls Lets Plants Communicate Using Twitter

New Botanicalls Lets Plants Communicate Using Twitter
The new version of Botanicalls can now talk to Twitter. It uses an Arduino electronics board connected to a notebook, and some soil moisture probes crafted from a couple of galvanised nails. Your plant can then send out a Twitter alert when it’s thirsty, detect when its been over- or under-watered and let you know about that, and it can even signal its thanks. So, if you’re off on vacation and your office-mates have abandoned your desk greenery, your plants can now automatically point the (green) finger at them. [Botanicalls via Make]
