The community garden in Victoria Harbour has been running for sometime and has 80 registered volunteers. However, there is a hidden disconnection between the owner of the plant and the public that does not truly resembles the term community.
SEED - a personal device which intents to connect those two dots by making sure there is a transparent telepresence between the plants, the owner and the community.
The personal device comes in two parts. One being the sensor to pick up the environmental data of the community garden bed while the other device - Seed, obtain the feedback. The feedback comes in a form of color-changing lights and pulsing effect which mimic the heartbeat of the plants. This approach provides a tele-presence for the owner. Giving awareness of the condition of it’s plants in the environment.
