A friend sent me this the other day. "Ridiculous?" he asked. "Or brilliant?"
My answer? Ridiculous.
Sure, a yard-sized sprinkler system wastes water. But this roomba-meets-squirt gun? Please! There's zero improvement in methodology. It waters the leaves of plants, a classic invitation for disease and increased evaporation (learn why drip irrigation reduces water and increases productivity).
It had me flashing back to last season's portrayal of nerdy tech guys "making the world a better place" on HBO's Silicon Valley. Well, that, and the days of cats wearing shark costumes and riding roombas. Put a kitty on a Droplet, and maybe then we'll be talking.[youtube
