Plant whisperer reminds you to water the greensAre your plants always turning a strange shade of brown because you tend to forget to water them? Perhaps you’d like technology to come to your rescue. Someone out there probably decided that it was too tiresome to remember when to do these menial tasks and came up with a solution. The solution involved giving the plants a voice via a “plant whisperer” to notify you. Using moisture probes, the device measures the moisture in the soil every two hours and reports the status, telling you whether it’s too wet, too dry or just right. The messages are in text form and converted to speech in real time. It would probably sound a little scary at night if the plants are in your room, but at least the plants shouldn’t die. Check out the video of it in action after the jump.
