I are builded a Venus Fly Trap flower toy.

Users can interact with the toy by using their mobile phone. For example, users can use their phone to feed the venus fly trap flower bugs, water the venus fly trap flower, and even use phone flash lights to light the fly trap flower.All these interactions will happen with different sensors on the toy or through the cloud server.

My mission is to build a new interface to connect virtual world and physical world.

I used disposable plates to made the Venus trap fly follower.

I found how to make it by google: https://www.google.com/#q=venus+fly+trap+paper+plate

I found a scrap wire. By bending it, I made the stem of the plant.

I found the heat glue was perfect to attach the wire to the follower.

I also added some double face type to stick a green paper on the surface of the follower to make its looking better.
