DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Bebe

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Plant watering bottle

INSPIRATION:
Inspiration for this project comes from my own experience. I am myself an amateur gardener and I grow few herbs for daily use. Recently I made small holiday in Singapore, leaving my plants with a temporary watering arrangement. Unfortunately all my plants died upon my return. This led me to investigate whether people have similar experiences as mine. Many gardeners seem to face the same dilemmas and this motivated me to design a solution.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Bebe smart is an automated plant care system, designed to be an innovative solution to help amateur gardeners forgetting to water their plants. Bebe system works by being filled with water and stuck into the surrounding soil of a potted plant. The unit will automatically dispense water as required for the specific kind of plant that is supposed to be nurtured. Bebe also has smart alert system which timely informs about water level. Plants can be reared healthy with adequate watering.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The user need to fill Bebe bottle with water and fix it in the plant pot. Then user can link bebe to his mobile with specially designed app. This helps Bebe to alert user regarding water level inside it. Also adjust the amount of water to be released to the plant on daily basis. Thus product helps the user to nurture plant healthy with proper watering.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Clinical type research was conducted with special batch of five users, total three sample batches were taken into consideration. Each one was segregated according to their age and gardening experience. The main objective of this research was to develop understanding of plant nurturing practices of people. Initially for data collection each batch was given set of general questionnaire. Based on the questionnaire filled, few users where selected for user scenario study. Selected user where observed and asked to describe their experiences with plant watering. Based on this observations user storyboards where made to gain insight about user usage and behavior pattern. Forgetting to water the plant or inadequate watering led to failure to maintain plant. This was the most valuable insight derived from the research analysis. It help to revise the problem statement "Devising a method to actively monitor plant watering". The revised problem statement had key impact on the brainstorming and conceptual development phase.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge in this project was to realize tangible product based on the user feedback and user behavior analysis. The product had to be conceptualized by taken into consideration possible scenarios it may fail.
