'Plantoy' is a funky looking gadget meant to monitor the health of houseplants. The device takes the form of a small robot and monitors the vital signs of your plant, letting you know when it needs more light, water and weather it's too hot or cold.

The Plantoy was created by French designer Elodie Delassus. The device is easy to use needing only to be pushed into the plant's pot. If there should be an issue, the device opens lights up to inform you of the problem and won't power down until you've solved the problem. More and more people are trying to go green at home, but they face problems with both a lack of experience and time. Devices such as the Plantoy would help turn even the greenest of gardeners into expert in-home landscapers. Stats for Playful Plant Monitors Trending: Older & Chilly
