Ulife / Intelligent planting pot


Being an intelligent planting pot, Ulife is capable of diverting our attention from phone screens to real life.
The sentence ”I’m hungry” will be shown on Ulife when plants need light exposure. Only if we put our phones on the pot will the top light be turned on, with a series of tasks we set displayed then randomly, like “reading”, “running” and “DIY Time”. Phones can only be moved away when the time set for each task is finished. In this whole procedure, not only can you enjoy planting but you’ll experience more exciting and meaningful things.
