SCAF / Technology


Scaf will connect to the phone via Bluetooth, and then a virtual plant will appear on the transparent screen. It will get your cell phone's "pick-up times and use time" data, and when these values are reasonably reduced, the plant will grow. When the plant matures, you can reset it and choose a new plant for cultivation. Scaf is powered by solar energy, and when you put your phone in that groove, it will charge your phone wirelessly. A transparent top cover can be placed underneath.
