Aspects of the present disclosure are directed to an interactive lighting device that includes sensor-equipped lighting elements that respond to users. In one particular example, the interactive lighting device of the present disclosure can include a structure (e.g., a custom designed structure) fashioned in the shape of a planter (e.g., a container for live plants) that can be mounted on a surface (e.g., a wall) and which can provide various lighting effects based on events (e.g., the presence or movement of users) detected by sensors of the interactive lighting device. For example, the interactive lighting device can control lighting elements such as light emitting diodes (LEDs) based on outputs from various types of sensors (e.g., step sensor, gesture sensor, proximity sensor, or an image sensor). In some embodiments, sensor data can be aggregated to produce different results as shown in camera and proximity sensors.
