Back to Parent


On the outer side, our product depicts a pet plant with a beating heart. It's heartbeat goes a but up when it knows that I have left office and heading home. It accelerates even further when we reach home and approach it.

On the back end on this display of emotions, there is a seamless system at work. We have the power source for electromagnets, the IR sensor and the breadboard with the Particle Photon and other components enclosed into it. The stem of the plant encloses a series of permanent magnets in series for magnifying the effect of the electromagnet. On top of it is the electromagnet. The petri dish containing the ferro fluid (which depicts the beating of the heart) is placed on top of the electromagnet. So, this efficient placement of objects in the form of a flower pot brings out the joy of someone coming back home.
