Plantimus is a toy created to encourage children to connect with nature. Taking inspiration from medical stethoscope my team and I created this interactive toy. By integrating code and hardware the Plantimus recognises the part or surroundings of the plant and generates different sounds for each part.
Plantimus was implemented using Max Cycling '74 software.
