Droplet is a Water Cannon for Your Plants

I wish this robotic water cannon came out early in the summer when I needed it to water two different gardens in two different properties in the blistering heat.

The Droplets sprinkler is the world's first programmable hose end sprinter system that is smartly connected to over 10,000 weather stations with real-time data, as well as comprehensive database that includes the biological plant information and US soil samples to make better recommendations on how much watering is appropriate.

The company claims that it uses up to 90% less water than a standard sprinkler-- a figure that does seem believable given that a lot of the speakers that I see in a neighborhood tend to sprinkle the water onto the sidewalk just as much as the grass.

Still, at $300 it seems a bit steep.  I'd buy a few if they were hundred dollars piece.  If I get my hands on one, I'll definitely let you know what I think.

Droplet is also available at Brookstone here.
