Make and Interact with Your Own Rory the Robot Plant
Absolutely adorable project from AhmedAzouz on hackster.io:
Rory is a funny looking robot in the form of a plant, which interacts with some inputs by sensors, plays music and detects any surrounding human movement. In addition, it can snap photos when you order it to.
It’s also caring about a small plant inside the pot, notify me with water level, humidity and temperature vocally in a human voice.
