BUDDI / Smart flowerpot


Planting allows children to learn the importance of life and to increase their sensibility. However, because planting requires the patience, and it leads children to lose interest; BUDDI is tried to solve the problem.
This product is based on an alien character with the concept, 'BUDDI, a plant from outer space, is a friend of a child'. BUDDI helps children to interactive communicate with plants through the app service. Facial emotions and status of the character on the app show the process of plant’s growth intuitively.
