The increase in single-person households is increasing the number of people suffering from loneliness and depression. Accordingly, companion industries such as animals, plants, and robots are growing. The plant-type companion device 'Greeny' provides emotional communion to relieve their loneliness and depression. It has five functions. Touch-sensitive leaves light on a line of leaf veins and sway when touched or poured water on the top. Also, depending on the environment and battery condition, the leaves give off five-colored lights. The main function is to express five emotional expressions on the front of the flower pot through touch, temperature/humidity sensing, and AI voice recognition information. Physically, the humidity sensor embedded in the product measures the surrounding environment and automatically operates it, and the wireless charger allows the main flower pot to be placed in the desired location, and other digital devices can be charged.
