Botanicalls on Good Morning America!

Botanicalls is a system that allows plants to call their owner when they need more (or less) sunlight or water. It works by placing moisture and light sensors in plants and then wiring them to an Asterisk (OS phone system) backend. Kati London, one of the creators and a member of the 2008 ETech program committee, was on Good Morning America today showing off the system (see the video above). Both Kati and Kate Harman showed off the system during the Emerging Telephony Faire.

Apparently they are making DIY kits for your home plants! If you can’t wait to try it call 212.202.8348 to test out the system.
