No Green Thumb?

• By McKinley Corble

If you have ever had trouble accommodating the needs of your houseplants, this adorable little flowerpot is here to make your job a whole lot easier.

The Lua Planter is designed to turn your plant into more of a pet by translating its needs into "feelings" that are displayed on a screen.

The planter is embedded with various sensors that can measure soil moisture, temperature, and sun exposure. If the plant is too hot, the cute little face on the screen will start to sweat. If it's thirsty, it will start to pant. If it isn't being exposed to enough sunlight, it will turn into a vampire.
