For those that have an awful time watering their plants on a consistent basis due to forgetfulness, this little design by Samgmin Bae could give them a standing chance to stay alive.
The Roly-Poly Pot concept works by the plant tipping to the side when it requires water. Due to a built-in water monitor and balancing system, the pot can measure the humidity level of the soil based on a pre-setting. Adjusted for different plants and their watering requirements, when dying of thirst, the pot slowly tips over using water as a counterweight.
It is still in the development stage but stands to be a great way to notify you or a house-sitter that your plants need some water!
