Turn A Milk Jug Into A Watering Can Without Hacking It To Bits

brilliantly upgraded the lowly button

Before the Sprout became available on Shapeways for just $20, you could easily turn a plastic jug into a watering can with a few strategic holes. But the genius of the Sprout is a design that minimises leaks. A ball valve allows the plastic jug to be easily filled without having to remove the Sprout or hack a hole in the side while still guaranteeing a soft, gentle sprinkle for your plants. Canadians should just move along though, as the Sprout isn’t compatible with empty plastic bags. [Shapeways via Notcot]
