Help…My plant is malfunctioning!

In the ever evolving world of robotics, there has been a constant search for ways to improve our lives and make jobs easier than ever before.  The classic idea of a robot consists of a towering figure with a pleasant disposition who will either protect you from hostile intruders complete with warnings (DANGER! Will Robinson! DANGER!) or serve up the latest in space age hot treats like Rosie, from the Jetsons.  But who would have thought that the ubiquitous symbol of domesticated living, AKA the house plant, would ever be rendered to androidian fame.  Enter…the Flower Nurse, an artificial potted plant that displays its needs and “status” via various informational dials and color changes.  For all of us struggling to get our living breathing plants to survive, I guess its a good way to practice before we perish.  Anyways, it’s just a plant.
