In unusual but true stories this week, we have a smart plant pot with a screen showing plants' "feelings", a couple born hours apart at the same hospital getting married, a robotic bartender in Prague, the first sign-language supermarket in the UK, and a creative mum painting her face with the Lion King cast.

All the odd and interesting anecdotes from around the world are here in our review.

Thanks to a clever design, you can now transform your favorite houseplant into a virtual pet with the ability to communicate its needs.

Created by Vivien Muller of Mu Design, the Lua smart plant pot shows 15 different animated emotions based on how plants are feeling.

Sensors in the pot trigger different animations depending on the soil's moisture, light exposure, and temperature. The pot is connected to an app that allows you to select the type of plant and customize your settings.
