5 senses


Lua has 5 senses:

Lua saves your greenery and makes you skip the hassle of an intricate setup: the free mobile app only requires an internet connection once for the download, and is then operational, even offline! Using Lua’s app is literally as simple as scanning a QR code!

Lua displays 15 different real-time animations :

6 animations are directly related to your plant’s health and overall well-being, while the 9 others gives Lua and your plant, a spark of life.

6 essential animations:

  • Thirsty: When soil moisture drops under the defined threshold, you need to water your plant.

  • Sick: Too much water can kill your plant too, wait until Lua is thirsty to add water.

  • Vampire: After a few days Lua will turn into a vampire if exposure to light is not sufficient.

  • Squint: Too much exposure to light can harm your plant, when Lua is squinting it’s looking for shade.

  • Cold: When the temperature drops. Lua will sneeze the day after.

  • Hot: Lua is too hot.

Other animations:

  • Happy: Lua is back to normal.

  • Puzzled: Lua couldn’t read your QR code.

  • Wink: You showed a QR code to Lua and it understood it.

  • Tired: Lua will go back to sleep when there’s no movement in front of it.

  • Wake-up: When Lua senses a movement.

  • Grumpy: Random animation. If stretch goal #2 is reached, Lua will look grumpy when there’s a good chance of rain.

  • Tongue sticking out: Random animation.

Lua detects a movement and follows it with the eyes. If nothing happens, Lua will go back to sleep.

Super simple app:

The app has been entirely designed around simplicity and ease-of-use:

  1. Download Lua app & let the easy setup install it in less than no time.

  2. Choose your plant’s family, the exact type of plant or manually set your own preferred thresholds. 

  3. Make Lua read the generated QR code and it’s all set!

iPhone-X-lua-app-menu.gif

The app lets you browse your plant’s category and type, then generates a QR code holding info specific to your plant. Lua reads the QR code generated on your device’s screen and sets the parameters accordingly.

The app allows you to change Lua’s facial proportions and adapts the animations accordingly.

The motion sensor allows Lua’s eyes to follow the movement in front of them: it’s like Lua’s looking at you!

Where Lua wants to be:

Lua’s conception and development took 13 months. We now have a fully working prototype and will soon start: the tooling and the components procurement. The first units will be tested right before starting the manufacturing on the assembly line. 

Lua’s final achievement relies on you! If this campaign reaches its goal, Lua will be delivered in December 2019.
