For centuries, scientists have had long debates on whether or not plants can convey emotion or have feelings. And now they do.
Meet Botanicalls. It's a do-it-yourself project that measures soil saturation of a plant. When the soil becomes too dry or do not have enough water, the sensor apparatus sends an automated signal - to your telephone or Twitter account.
Botanicalls's objective is to open communication between plants and people. But the company is also making over-watering and plant neglect a thing of the past. Plants now last longer and stay healthy for longer.
