If a person is in danger, he or she simply whips out a phone, and with the Botanicalls Kit, household plants can now do the same.

The Botanicalls Kit is a leaf-shaped device that connects to your plants and electronically measures its well-being. If the plant is in need of care, such as watering, the Botanicalls Kit will tweet its owner's Twitter account and alert them to perform the task. After getting the help it needs, Botanicalls Kit will also thank its owner also via Twitter.

Sure, some assembly's required, but it'll totally be worth it to have your plant communicate with you.
