Talk Plant

Talk Plant is a digital pot which is designed specially for children. Purpose: Improving children’s connection with the real world using the digital world, developing their sense of responsibility and patience.Why:The existing plants sensors only target professional farmers and gardeners, while the existing games for children don't encouragement them to interact with the real world. How: When children pick a seed, they are not aware of which kind of plant they will grow. The digital pot will sense the light, humidity, nutrition status and translate these statuses into dialog. During the growing process, children will learn how to grow plant.
