target being used as an example for the EmbeddedAnalysisWorkshop2011.

This device is placed in a plant and either monitors the water intake of the plant over a period of time which can then be analyzed online or it can be used to get an instant reading of current water needs. It supports Windows and Mac but the Mac software has not worked since purchase. Making open source drivers is probably the most interesting project for this, which would involved reverse engineering the USB protocol. However, this is a hardware workshop so we are going to split it open.
