Have you ever said to yourself, “Dammit! I wish my keyboard was made out of grass and wood and shit. These metals and plastics are just too… durable. I want the oils and moisture from my fingers to quickly and surely ruin the component that I use so very often.” Well, you’re not alone. In fact, designer Robbie Tilton has already made that dream a reality.
In his summary of this project he posed the questions, “What if our technology lived and breathed? If it required us to water it at night in order to allow it to bloom?” Now I’m no tech wiz, but in my experience, whenever I’ve ‘watered’ any of my personal electronics, the shit stops working. Maybe I just have bad luck.
I do have to hand it to the guy, it is a pretty cool concept, but when it comes to tools of productivity, I’m more of a function over form kinda guy. But that’s just me.
