Parrot Pot: "One Month of Water Autonomy". Or, This Sprinkler Always Hits Its Mark, the Sequel

The New Age-y version

CES: A Fitness Watch, Smart Light Bulbs and a Self-Watering Flower Pot. (The New York Times, 1/7/2015)

File this under "people who shouldn't have house plants" or "people with no friends".
File this under laughable at first, but brilliant on second notice. The obviously named Pot, by the French electronics maker better known for its drones (among other devices) is a Bluetooth-connected flower pot that can sense the water level in a plant, then automatically water it from a reservoir on the side of the pot.
The smart belt is also a French development.

The blabbermouth, rock'n'roll version.  (Tinkle begins at 1:03.)
