Mother is shaped like a bowling pin, with two glowing eyes and a little smile painted on its face. It comes with four cookies and a whole lot of possibilities. It knows when you forgot to take your vitamins or how much sleep you got last night. It can even know how long you brushed your teeth.
Installing Mother at home is easy. It has an Ethernet port to connect to your Wi-Fi and a cord for the power supply. Since it has to be hard wired to your connection, you need to make sure to keep Mother near your router.

You simply have to click a tile to know the details.
