Do the plants on your balcony always die despite your best efforts? Perhaps you need some outside help, which might arrive in the form of the Docomo Garden Sensor. This useful device can be inserted into the soil where your plants are, allowing it to measure moisture and sun levels, collecting data which will be sent back to Docomo via Wi-Fi, ready to be inspected by a number of gardening experts who will then send you tips on how to improve the health of your plants. The sensors will be launched in Japan on a trial basis sometime next year and will set you back $20-$30.
