The BonsAI's Aim is to Connect People & Nature Through Technology

BonsAI is an intelligent plant, which can hold conversations and asks to be watered. This groundbreaking innovative development combines horticultural techniques, refined and meditative aesthetics, as well as artificial intelligence by TDK Corporation.

The high-tech bonsai is not only autonomously mobile, but it also is able to take care of itself. The intelligent plant favors sunlit areas and has a tendency to move toward them. When basking in the sun, the BonsAI communicates comfort with LED lights. In addition, the vegetation reminds owners to water it when its soil is dry.

However, the most impressive feature of the intelligent plant is that it can converse with humans and offer contemplative and extensive knowledge in different fields, including philosophy and literature.
