Floris is my new pet plant. It's an interactive, self sustaining, light reactive, cybernetic plant.
This project uses an Arduino board powered by a rechargeable 9V battery. The battery is recharged by the solar panels that also sense where the light is coming from and change the direction the plant is facing.
If you shine a light at it, the flower rotates and follows where the light is coming from.
Floris was made as a project for my Interactive Design (BAhons) at the University of Lincoln, 2011.
