Power Plant

IoT, Tangible Interface Design

Power Plant is a friendly house plant that helps users keep their energy and water use in check. Like a real plant, it requires attention and can die if it's not properly tended to. To help keep it healthy it can give status updates on how to improve its health. The plant has three settings (indicated by the lights and position of the leaves) that showcase the current health of the plant. If energy and water use is poor, the plant gets "sick" and eventually "dies." It motivates users to keep the plant healthy as they would with real plants.
