This Little Robot Helps Keep Your Plants Alive And Throws A Tantrum When It Needs Water

I am the grim reaper when it comes to raising house plants — any plants for that matter. What is the opposite of a green thumb? I am that.

I totally need this awesome little friend! It’s called the Hexa Plant, and it’s a robot planter! It has ONE job: it will move out of the shadows to keep its plant in the sunlight.

The Hexa Plant will also stamp its feet and throw a little fit when its plant needs water. Kind of like my son when he wants a snack — which is always.

Sign me up! This little dude may actually help me keep my house plants alive, because everyone knows I can’t do it on my own!

The Hexa Plant holds a medium size plant on its base (on its head?). It is PERFECT for that succulent you picked up on a whim at your local nursery.

This little robot will even “PLAY” with you when you touch its base. It will do a little happy dance in the sun, and spin around when its “happy.”

It looks like a six-legged friendly little robot spider, and it seeks out that sunny spot like a cat caught in the shade.

This Hexa Plant was envisioned by Sun Tianqi, when he saw an unfortunate sunflower at a flower expo that had withered in the shade. He thought, ‘If there were only a way to keep this flower in the sunlight, it could have flourished.’

This Hexa Plant is not yet available, but you can be sure I’ll be first in line when it comes out! Afterall, I need a SMART Planter for the succulent I bought at Aldi yesterday.

His sister*, The Original Hexa, is available for the price of $799.

It can walk and climb, take photos and videos, check your backyards and dance to the beat! You can connect HEXA at anywhere with its own WiFi. Plus, with HEXA you can create the applications you’ve been dreaming of. Besides the hardware parts, HEXA comes with an OS, open source SDK and 3D simulator. Play, learn and be creative with HEXA, it is more than just a robot.


*It may be Hexa Plant’s brother? I’m not sure.

Have you checked out these Black Succulents? I so need one! It would look so sleek and cool in Hexa Plant!
