The “Spore 1.1” project is a self-sustaining ecosystem for a rubber tree plant purchased from Home Depot where the economic health of Home Depot stock value is analyzed and used to control the watering of the plant through a custom built circuit. If the company does poorly and the plant dies, the plant is returned to Home Depot and replaced with another at no additional cost. Let’s just hope that the economy starts improving so that we can save all of the house plants.

Oh, damn. Watering a plant based on market value is torture. The plant is pretty much guaranteed to die.
So, the owner of the plant will potentially let the thing get under nourished, and then return it to Home Depot, thereby marginally decreasing the overall profit margin of HD?
This is a completely useless, pointless exercise.
