5. IVY — 2018

IVY is a plant that can digitally communicate it’s mood, bridging the verbal communication barrier held between nature and human. Using a SHT10 soil humidity sensor, Processing, and Arduino, IVY will tell you how it feels through the simple click of a button.

Pressing the red button activates the soil sensor, which will read IVY’s soil humidity levels.

If IVY does not have enough water, a sad message will appear such as, “The world is a cruel cruel place for a house plant...”

If IVY has enough water, a happy message will appear on the screen, such as “I simply have no desire for water at the moment. Feels good!”
