Just in time Trident Design, LLC introduces a neat gadget that helps keep your plants alive.

The Thirsty Light starts to blink when your plant needs water.
The Thirsty Light functions based on digital technology called Drypoint, consisting of two primary components: a sensor at the tip of its probe and a digital circuit housed in its pod. When placed in soil, the Thirsty Light’s sensor measures the electrical resistance of the soil environment once every second with lower resistance indicating higher moisture levels. The Drypoint digital circuit then interprets the results and takes the appropriate action, either emitting a blinking pattern or remaining dormant.

At $9.95 this is a great gift for anybody who does not have a green thumb.

Trident Design has already landed one gadget hit with the PowerSquid Surge Protector. Possibly the Thirsty Light is their next hot seller.
