My final design is an electronic addition to a plant pot that shows the user via LED-lit smiley faces when the plant needs watering. And when the user waters the plant, it makes the plant dance in appreciation.

I want my design to make the caregiver of house-plants feel confident about their ability to care for their house-plants.

I want the interaction with my product to feel like when you are walking through the forest, when you see a deer. You make eye contact for a while. Then without warning the deer runs back deep into the forest.
