The Smartest Robot Planter: It Follows The Sunlight And Throws Tantrums If You Don’t Water It

Plants enrich our home, and additionally – our life. Almost every one of us has a few plants at home.

Some of the benefits of having plants at home are:

  • They clean the air
  • They neutralize our stress
  • They boost our creativity
  • They relieve respiratory problems
  • They reduce fatigue
  • They improve our learning abilities
  • They help with insomnia
  • They upgrade our memory
  • They add more humidity

However, many people think that it’s enough only to keep the plants in our homes, not thinking of the fact that we actually have to take care of them regularly.

We are so busy with our modern lives, that watering our plants is certainly the last thing we remember to put on our to-do list.

Sun Tianqi talked about the dead sunflower he saw at a flower expo, which had died due to lack of sunlight. It would have stayed alive if it had simply been moved to a sunny area.

Sun Tianqi said: “The dead flower sat in a place that was always in a shadow. I had no idea how it ended up there or why it died – whether it was because of the lack of sunshine or water – but it was just there, and it was dead. I thought if it could move a little bit, take a 30-feet walk out of the shadow to where the other sunflowers were, it would have lived healthily. But it didn’t.”

Tianqi added that plants are passive, and even if they experience some harm, they would hold still. Dear houseplant people, here we offer you something that you’d simply die for! This robot planter is excellent!

Believe it or not, the HEXA Plant, which is a robot planter, takes your plan for a walk in order to get enough sunlight. It was created by Sun Tianqi – Vincross’s founder.

Its job is to keep your plants alive and happy, taking them to sunny spots, and throwing tantrums when it isn’t given enough water. Consider it your indoor gardening assistant.

This robot is actually a modified version of the already existing HEXA item. It has several “eyes”, such as a 720p night vision-camera, a built-in Wi-Fi, infrared and distance sensors and USB ports. It works for medium-sized plants.

The fun doesn’t end here. The robot can also dance for you, in some sunny area, if you touch its base.

“For billions of years, plants have never experienced movement of any kind, not even the simplest movement,” Tianqi wrote.

This robot isn’t available right now, but you can buy the standard HEXA.
