Artificial Plant Emotion Expressor (A.P.E.X.)

Want to know what your plants are thinking? This video walks you through the process to build such a machine… But beware the consequences!! (watch to the end…)

APEX is a smart (not to mention cute) plant monitoring device. Just plug it into any plant and it will display the “happiness” level of the plant! This is a great reminder to water your plants if you have a bad habit of forgetting to water them.
