Episode 939

The Giz Wiz is back with the strangest gadget of 2012 ... the Koubachi Wi-Fi Plant Sensor, which makes your plants wifi enabled! What it does is send you notification that your plant needs water or attention. The sensor learns the watering cycle of your plant and then will remind you to no matter where you are. It remembers up to 27 different plants, so you can move them from plant to plant. For indoor plants it's $99, and the outdoor version $129.

The Giz Wiz and the Pen Zen

Episode 937

This week's gadget comes from Quirky. It's called the Pen Zen, a cleverly designed storage unit for pens, pencils, highlighters, and other office supplies. You can position your Pen Zen horizontally with the items extending out of the top, or stand it upright with the items extending out of the ends. Choose the arrangement that suits you best! But wait, there’s more! Hidden magnets below the bamboo surface hold paper clips and other small magnetic items. How clever is that?
