Seeing Eye Flowerpot

It can’t help you cross the street, but EYE is a flowerpot through which you can view a plant’s root system. Why would you want to do that? EYE can provide information about soil humidity and conditions, light level, and ambient temperature, which it displays on the front of the vessel.

Hmm, I’m not a scientist, so who knows, but if it works could be a useful thing for those without green thumbs. Now please pass me some water.
