Roly Poly Pot Redux
By user12607856 on Jan 16, 2008
I saw this post on Hackszine about a flower pot that will tilt over when it needs water.
That's cute, but why stop there? One article below it shows how you can use an Arduino board for helicopter control to stabalize the roll and pitch.
Why not combine the two? When the pot tips, the Arduino detects this and waters the plant. Hopefully the pot goes back to vertical and the water is turned off.
Now that would be a neat hack!
