Earth Hour Event

I have just found out via Twitter of all things that tonight in about 1/2 hour it is the WWF’s Earth Hour – the idea being that we all turn our lights and laptops etc… off.

I know it’s a bit late to be posting about it but I thought it sounded interesting so went and had a look and am just about to sign up!

Conservation is only going to become a bigger issue.

Hopefully I will keep track of future events better!

Twitter Enable Your Plants

A friend of mine twittered this product it looks like a leaf made of circuit board that you stick into the soil of your plant pot. It is actaully a sensor and twitters when it needs to be watered!

Twitter is a social networking microblogging thing which if you can become addicted too – this means this would actually really help keep your plants watered :) or to stop you over watering.

It’s a make it yourself kit which also looks fun. This post translats as I want one or maybe half a dozen of these! They came from one of my favourite companies – Think Geek :)

Now you have to be able to solder to make this kit up so if anyone wants to bribe me with curry to assemble them I just might :)

What I would like to see though is ones that I could connect to a nabaztag mainly so the plant in the office doesn’t die! or maybe just an email alert/txt message alert system. I am wondering now how hard that would be to do?

Also sensors that detect other things might be a cool idea :)
