Botanicalls Kits let plants reach out for human help! They offer a connection to your leafy pal via online Twitter status updates to your mobile phone. When your plant needs water, it will post to let you know, and send its thanks when you show it love.

The Botanicalls Kit includes all the hardware you need to create a networked communication system for your plant. A moisture sensor placed into the soil will send information to simple electronic detection circuitry you solder together yourself. Twitter updates are then sent out via an onboard Ethernet connection to the Internet, where they can be viewed online or routed to your mobile phone. Previous soldering experience is not required, and complete instructions are available online with detailed photos showing each assembly step.

In your Botanialls Kit you'll find a leaf-shaped printed circuit board, Arduino-based microcontroller, an array of electronic components, Ethernet adapter, power supply and a short Ethernet cable for testing. You'll provide a wired Internet connection, and of course a fabulous plant!.

For more information, including complete instructions, see the Botanicalls web site: http:\/\/www.botanicalls.com.
