Engaging with nature through an interactive houseplant
Design challenge
Helping plant owners not killing their plants by learning how to take care of them, resulting in better indoor climate using plants own self-cleaning capabilities.
My Contributions
Problem scoping, UI and UX Design, Hardware Prototyping, 3D Modelling & User Evaluations
Approach: Physically touching the plant or the soil, will drive a conversational narrative of the plants well-being and personality. Embedded capacitive, moisture and weight sensors in the soil of plant, enabled capturing well-being-data, and map these to a mobile narrative.

Results: A functional prototype consisting of a hardware device inserted into the soil, and a React mobile application running the narrative.
