About this exposition

A plant pet, a plant friend. Ambient technology, present for company. The concept promotes interaction and physical activity through responsive expressions on the digital MicroBit display. Every plant have their own individual characteristics. Some of them are shy and some will be more expressive. Select your favourite type, with your preferred plant personality. You will have to give it a name and take care of it in your home, office space, in your living room or wherever it’s suitable. The plant is a “robot”, with a display screen. Here you can read the plant’s “feelings” with it’s expressive face. You will notice when it’s thirsty, needs nutrition or when it expresses its need for attention. In return you will have a good companion, always ready for interaction. This is an open source project encouraging people to make it themselves. A concept tailored for interaction between people in isolation or distance relationships.
