TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW

Living Plant Installations is an integrally unique way of interacting with the vegetal environment. By converting plants into biological switches, we can activate lights, sounds, music, videos, and a myriad of other devices by touching plant leaves. Applications in smart cities, architecture, domotics, experiential marketing, events, and city spaces.

TECHNOLOGY FEATURES & SPECIFICATIONS

The system senses changes in frequency and the conductivity of the plants connected to recognize when one of them comes in contact with a human body and to activate the target mechanisms. The electronics adapt to various plant and pot sizes and both to indoor and outdoor environments. The system can operate with as little as one plant pot or with as many as 100 and more.

POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS

- Architecture & domotics: activating light, sound, movement or screens by contacting with nature elements inside the room (such a plant pots or vegetal walls).

- Experiential marketing & events: representing your brand in a disruptive and experiential way to reconnect it with its essence, to showcase and evidence your commitment to sustainability.

- Monuments in city spaces: working with city halls worldwide to create a symbiosis between nature and technology by constructing singular landmarks.

Benefits

Living Plant Installations add interactivity to nature elements that are thought to be completely static (plant pots or vegetal walls) and provide a unique experience to your clients and visitors. They evidence your commitment to sustainability and can be customized to your needs both cosmetically and internally.
