Chromafant Blossom
Silicone and aluminum blossoms use capacitive sensing to detect a nearby hand, causing them to gracefully sway and glow bright colors.
Cobra Orchid
Translucent acrylic segments give this orchid-like flower its serpentine quality of movement as it orients to the warmth of a human body.
Dragon Iris
Copper blossoms with thermal sensors in the aluminum leaves sense the warmth of people and orient towards them as a flower to the sun.
Violet Oscilillies
Inspired by the movement of tall grass to a sweeping breeze, aluminum tines bob and ripple with excitement as a hand passes over them.
The Flowers
Concepts
Chromafant Blossom
originally was to have a translucent outer flower close over a colored inner flower. We kept the translucent idea in the physical implementation.
Cobra Orchid
stayed relatively true to physical implementation. We opted for a more translucent and segmented body in the physical implementation.
Dragon Iris
originally was to have more of a "face" with glowing "eyes." We kept the orienting face, changed from silver to copper, and removed the "eyes."
Violet Oscilillies
orginally was to have the flower telescope and glow. We kept the telescoping idea and added articulated movement of the petals, rather than have it glow.
