Water Scooper

An intelligent system for watering in the garden

The Water-Scooper is an attempt to mechanically automate the watering of plants. Pivoting pipes are catching waterdrops from a reservoir. Slowly those pipes get filled up with the drops and once the waters height reaches a certain point, the pipe becomes top-heavy - tilts and pours the collected water into a sprinkling system (needle-holed pipes). This sprinkling system is layed out in the garden and works with waterpressure gained from difference in height btw the scooper and the garden. The amount of water for the plants over a certain period of time is determined by the amounts of single waterdrops in the first place.
