In the fast-paced world of technology, artificial intelligence continues to weave its way into our daily lives, offering innovative solutions to everyday challenges. Recently, I found myself relying on Bing AI to create a visual reminder for my daughter. In this blog post, I’ll share my experience using Bing AI to craft a picture of a dark room with plants, all with the simple goal of prompting my daughter to open her curtains.

The Forgotten Curtains:

We’ve all been there – caught up in the hustle and bustle of daily life, sometimes overlooking the simplest tasks. In this case, my daughter had forgotten to open her curtains, plunging her room into darkness despite the vibrant daylight outside. Rather than resorting to a mundane text message, I decided to leverage the power of Bing AI to send a more visually compelling reminder.

Bing AI:

A Helping Hand: Bing AI, developed by Microsoft, has proven itself as a versatile tool capable of various tasks, including image creation. Using its AI capabilities, I embarked on a creative journey to generate a realistic depiction of a dark room adorned with plants – a visual representation of my daughter’s overlooked environment.

The Process:

  1. Accessing Bing AI: I started by accessing Bing AI through its user-friendly interface, which provides a range of creative tools, including image generation.

  2. Setting the Scene: With a few prompts, I guided the AI to understand the specific elements I wanted in the image – a dark room and some plants. Bing AI uses advanced algorithms to interpret and generate visual content based on user inputs.

  3. Customization: One of the fascinating aspects of using Bing AI is the level of customization it offers. I was able to tweak details, such as the type of plants and the intensity of darkness, ensuring the generated image closely matched the reality of my daughter’s room.

  4. Image Output: Within moments, Bing AI processed my inputs and produced a vivid image that captured the essence of a dark room with plants. The realistic depiction exceeded my expectations, adding a touch of creativity to a simple reminder.

Sending the Reminder:

Armed with the generated image, I shared it with my daughter via WhatsApp. The visual reminder was not only effective but also sparked a conversation about the seamless integration of technology into our daily lives.


In the age of artificial intelligence, leveraging innovative tools like Bing AI can transform mundane tasks into creative endeavors. My experience using Bing AI to create a visual reminder for my daughter highlights the potential of AI in enhancing communication and solving everyday challenges. As technology continues to evolve, embracing these advancements can add a layer of efficiency and creativity to our lives, making the ordinary extraordinary.

Full Disclosure:

It took me a few attempts to get AI to understand what I wanted and when I first started it was quite far of the mark, my initial ask was for the following:

I’d like an all black picture with a four pairs of eyes of different sizes and different heights to signify 4 things in a dark room, there is a speech bubble which says “has the god of light forgotten us” in a cartoon style

and the resulting image:

When it comes to developing anything I’m a great proponent of the “shit in – shit out” ethos but in this case, I’m not convinced that the balance is quite there.
