    I think that's a fake car in the photo.

    I think it's also possible to make a flying dog without a car. All you need is a bridge and a dog. The higher the bridge, the longer the flight time.

    I think you can also use this method for flying cats.

    This is great! How long does the planning and the blueprints take? I want to try this soon, but I think I might have to get a car first.

    is that a telephone/electric pole? You might want to check with the city, that might be a hazard.

    its can, but you will need to print off a first copy, then make a mold from silicon and cast the parts in resin

    This is an awesome idea. I would love to see these things around. Have you looked into Kickstarter for funding? www.kickstarter.com

    Is the hope that rain will just keep the bottom container full of water after seeping through the soil in the top container so no watering is necessary?

    gday, yea i will try and get a project set up though kickstarter, but as im not from the US or UK im not sure if you can put up projects??
    Rain does pass though the soil and fills up the water container through the winter, but as im in Australia the water containers need manual watering throughout the summer.

    Try putting small holes at the top of the bottom bottle or near the bottom of the top bottle-they shouldn't affect the automatic watering but would allow for overflow when/where there's a chance of too much rain. If you don't make the holes too large there shouldn't be too much evaporation either-maybe an 1/8 of an inch might be good. I lost too many plants to over watering when there was rain so I almost always add overflow holes to anything other than conventional planters. I'm in a usually rather cold/wet region of the US so rain is a problem.

    Good idea
    Had something similar in mind for my terrariums (i breed chameleons)
    But the plants tend to be troublesome
    Will try this method

    great! i hope it works out, do the chameleons eat the plants?? Chameleons are so cool!

    This is awesome. I'd love to see more of this around! Of course, I wouldn't want to eat anything grown near the streets where I live, but then, I should probably move out of the city.

    no, the city is where we need to be!!

    Congratulations on the first instructable! it looks great! I hope this catches on and people jump on board to help it grow!
