elfinGarden is like a Tamagotchi for your plants

Finally, an interactive pot that will take the guesswork out of watering flowers.

Created by Maker Monica Lau, the elfinGarden is an innovative, entertaining planter that helps users communicate with their plants as if they were raising a pet.


Powered by an Seeeduino v3.0 (ATmega328), the device is packed with touch and moisture sensors, a few strips of LED lights, an 8×8 matrix, and an MP3 player.

elfinGarden provides a natural growing environment right on your desk — whether inside an office or dorm — making it interesting to plant in sedentary living, and of course, easier to care for the plant. Thanks to Lau, you can take the guesswork out of deciphering when a pot needs nutrients. In fact, your plant will now be able to express its feelings, such as a smile for happiness or animated tears when thirsty.

Watch it in action below!
