Who am I?
I'm an interactive flowerpot whose goal is to make the lives of elderly people more comfortable and cozy.
With my sensors, I capture the temperature of the room I'm in and the amount of light that enters, by doing this I can help elderly people in taking care of plants or herbs.
Capabilities & Use cases
Billy-Billy will recognise the plant or herb sown in soil. In other words, Billy-Billy will be familiar with the plant’s/ herb’s water, light and temperature needs, and will know, thanks to its light and moisture sensors, to remind the plant’s/herb’s owner about these to prevent stunted growth.
Billy-Billy is a lifetime companion. Connected to the internet and a personal diary, it remembers the day the family are coming to visit and the time medication needs to be taken.
It enjoys being cared for, but Billy-Billy is first and foremost there to care for its owner. On very hot weather, it will be the first to remind its owner to stay hydrated and ventilate the room.
A robot for all, whether you are green-fingered or not. Connected to the internet and a dedicated platform, Billy-Billy is capable of reading messages your loved ones have sent you. No need for a smartphone or laptop to receive a short message or thoughtful word: Billy-Billy is also rather like a postman…
What if a robot could nurture social bonds?
Sometimes the smallest things in life are the most important. Thanks to Billy-Billy, a simple seed sown in soil becomes a pretext for taking care of ourselves and others. Billy-Billy is the name of a robot which, when thinking of your houseplant, will also inconspicuously think of you. By reminding you that it needs water, heat and light, this smart, connected flowerpot will also take care of your needs and remind you of the day’s agenda. So, whether or not you are someone who talks to your plants, Billy-Billy will talk to you and even read you messages your loved ones have sent you.
