Here’s the description of a very interesting grass root innovation – article.
It’s a solution for farmers who can switch on/off or check the status of the pump at their fields, remotely. I had heard about a little earlier also, but am heartened to see that they are now commercial and have a decent enough user base. Also, the price of the product does warrant a second look. Most people would not think much before parting with Rs. 1000 (about $20), but for farmers (and poor souls like me :)), it is a significant amount of money. And, the product solves such a simple problem that you stop and think why somebody did not do this before. That, in my opinion, is the sign of an innovation which will succeed.
