Feed me Seymour!!! The Botanicalls Twitter plant system is a DIY USB monitor for your houseplants that gives you a message alert via Twitter when your plant is thirsty and a thank you message once it’s been watered. The system is VERY DIY and seems a bit beyond the casual tinkerer. Now it’s not just your friends calling you to ask for a drink, it’s also your plants. If someone could just combine this with a remote release for the IV Plant Drip system we might be business. Or better yet- someone could hook this up to my beer glass and Twitter my bartender when I’m ready for a refill.
