As if we're not getting enough electronic stimulation already, a new device enables plants to send a text message when they need a drink.

A sensor developed by Israeli scientists sends text messages to farmers when crops need water, or to homeowners when the Ficus is thirsty. It is currently being prepped for international commercial markets.

Make like a tree and send a text. What a waste of scientific research. Sure it's neat but cmon, plant texting?

Wow, that's some lazy farmers right there.

Just sit around doing nothing and wait for a text message.



... I think I'd prefer to buy from farmers who care a little more about consistent watering schedules, and have enough common sense not to buy into such a gimmick.

Why not use the sensors on automatic irrigation.

Why do they have to think text messages have to control what we do?
