Roly-Poly Pot

Silver
2008

The Roly-Poly Pot is a "smart pot" concept that lets plant owners know when plants are in need of water. When the pot begins to tumble over, the owner knows that it's time to water. The mechanism is both simple and innovative. A built-in water monitor and a balancing system enables this pot to detect the humidity level of the soil based on a pre-setting. Using water as a counterweight, the pot slowly tips over when water levels in the pot are low. The Roly-Poly Pot can be adjusted to each plant's individual watering requirements.
