(this is project #2 for this week. I focused more time on experiment #1, “tamagotchi party,” but wanted to get this idea out of my system too.)
My friend L thought it would be fun to use the plant sensor towards something virtual. I thought about things that take in water, sun… things that grow.
Today in ICM, we learned how to manipulate strings. I was struck with this image of a poem which is generated…. so slowly… over the period of days. And even better if it took on a life of its own, and like all other organisms, grow using water and light.

the bare bones hardware (in progress):
Like everything else, this project is an under-going process! Will update more later.
