Botanicus Interacticus.

Botanicus Interacticus explores the design of highly expressive interactive plants, both living and artificial. Botanicus Interacticus has a number of unique properties. The instrumentation of living plants is simple, non-invasive, and does not damage the plants: it requires only a single wire placed anywhere in the plant soil. It allows for rich and expressive gestural interaction, such as sliding fingers on the stem of the orchid, detecting touch and grasp location, tracking proximity between human and a plant, and estimating the amount of touch contact, among others.

Botanicus Interacticus is based on Touché sensing technology that we developed earlier this year  and  it will be used to design highly interactive environments based on living plants.
