September 11, 2008 Looking more like an alien spacecraft than a sprinkler, Aquarius is an irrigation control system designed by Aydin Oztoprak and Ozgur Ruhi Ulvan. Solar powered and remote managed, Aquarius automatically adjusts its water flow depending on the soil, crop and weather, conditions making it one very intelligent piece of eco-friendly water design.

The design includes sensors attached to its shaft to enable detection of humidity at different levels of soil. The idea is to deliver the most efficient way of irrigation to combat the massive use of water by agricultural irrigation. It's definitely a concept with massive potential.
