Smart Vase / Vase

Smart Vase
Smart Vase

It is apt to lose the timing for supplying water unless we check out the condition of vase closely in daily base.
A magnet is attached in the bottom of "Smart Vase". Magnet has a characteristic to push out the same pole.When enough water is supplied, magnets with same pole are touched with each other because of weight gravity.When time goes, volume of water will be reduced as plant absorbs water which causes weakening of gravity, which makes magnets push out respectively. Then the part obtaining water will go up and we can recognize the time when we supply water.
