A built-in computer automatically monitors the moisture levels in your plant’s soil, providing H20 when readings come up dry. The potter can be used with a variety of plants with their own specific soil and water needs, with a data storage option so watering calibration matches your plants requirements. Every 30 minutes the planter will check the moisture level in your pot against the original moisture level. If the soil is dry, a small amount (1/2-1/3 cup) of water is added automatically. Not bad for $49.95 considering it will likely save you money in the long run if you're already bound to kill anything leafy and alive near you.
No doubt some of you out there are wondering if you can hack this for your own personal use with one of those hat-soda can sipper cups.
