2017 Case study
An iPad app that keeps track of house plants' health.
The app communicates with a sensor in the plant that measures humidity and light.
 

1/3
  • When tilting the iPad, the water flows around realistically.
  • The water indicates if the plant was watered too much / too little.
 

A sensor in the plants communicates to the iPad:

  • The health of the plant (0–100%)

  • If it is getting the right amount of sunlight

  • If it is getting the right amount of water

The app allows to:
  • Quickly assess the state of all plants

  • Know if any of your plants need help

  • Add a new plant and sensor

Displayes additional information and instructions about light and water levels
