Digital Pot / Communication Device

Digital Pot
Digital Pot

Digital Pot is composed of three parts. The inside of the pot is filled with soil and sensors to measure soil conditions, temperature, humidity and water level. These sensors determine whether or not the plant’s basic needs are being met.
The outside of the pot uses speakers and pictograms on an LCD screen to relay the conditions measured by the sensors. This way, the plant can communicate how it feels or what it needs whether the plant is dissatisfied or thirsty.
The lower part of the pot contains a water holding vessel. If you’ve over-watered the plant, the excess water will drain into this vessel.
