Plants would make great pets if they just did more stuff. Hey, they can grow, they can make oxygen, they can die… but that’s pretty much it. Nobody names a plant. You can’t really hug a plant. However, luckily for you Sega of Japan has re-envisioned the lowly plant as a cute robotic companion.
Talk to your Pekoppa plant and it responds to your voice by bending and moving in a very lifelike manner (if real plants could move, which they mostly don’t). Ignore it and it gets pretty sad. The more you talk, the happier it is… making it the ideal companion.
