A sample of the first phrases to be uttered by my latest creation, the Plant Whisperer. This device attaches onto a potted plant and monitors the soil moisture. Every two hours it wakes up and reports the status. It recognizes the soil as being too dry, just right, or too wet - and chooses a phrase from a list to report the status.

The Plant Whisperer is using real-time text-to-speech synthesis on a Parallax Propeller microcontroller. The code is still a little rough (as you can clearly hear) With some tweaking of the phrases its possible to make them clearer.

For full details on this project, including how to make one yourself, see www.instructables.com/id/the-plant-whisp­erer
