‘Mu Design’ came up with a brilliant idea to help people all over the world keep their plants alive and happy by turning them into Tamagotchi-like pets by giving them a way to communicate via this smart planter.
The only thing you have to do is to connect your phone to the planter by downloading an app and scanning a QR code with your planter. You also need to select what kind of plant is it, so you know what exactly does your little friend need at the moment.
The screen on the planter is able to show you 15 different emotions expressing plants’ basic needs such as more sunshine or water. It also does a cute squinting face to let you know if the last tropical rain of your creation was a bit too much or if it’s too cold.
The planter displays an array of emotions including a vampire face with its fangs stuck out to let you know it could do with a little bit of sunshine. It will glare off your pet if it tries to sneak up on it as well. Isn’t it just life-like, huh?
The company hopes to ship their products by December 2019 but for now, they have a Indiegogo campaign set up with 30,000€ as their fixed goal, having raised 57% of it thus far. Let’s bid them good luck so we can all turn our green babies into these cute little pets!
