For developing minds, knowing the basics of plant care can be a tricky field to navigate, so the 'Pure Life' garden planter looks to add tech integration to help gamify the experience.

The 'Pure Life' planter works by having a plant planted inside of it and paired with a smartphone or tablet. The pot will then use the sensors within to keep track of soil moisture, nutrition and more, and relay the information to the connected user.

Rather than telling child users that the plant simply needs water or food, the 'Pure Life' garden planter displays an avatar that's happy, sad or hungry to help personify it. This helps to make greenery more like a digital pet and thus more fun to help grow and flourish.

The 'Pure Life' pot is the design work of Tomas Moyano.
