Back to Parent

First Iteration

We immediately simplified the idea due to the overall complexity of actions. In terms of motion, the plant's wilting action was removed and the user interaction was adjusted from direct touch on the leaves to a touch capacitor at the base of the planter. 

The main form factor also shifted significantly from a minimalist cylindrical vase to a delicate origami flower pot which would dim and brighten to green much like a simple light bulbThe user would simply slide their finger along the base of Plantr from left to right, to achieve dark to bright green. When the user's finger releases the capacitor, it plays a soft chime (first prototyped with a in a piezo). Again, when the first user interacts with the plant, the action is mirrored in the second.
