Cactunes

A series of hypersensitive cacti. Touch them and find out how they react!

The cacti were transformed to dangerous capacitive sensors by putting a needle in each cactus and connecting them to a Raspberry Pi. Thanks to the water inside the cacti, they become resistors. Be careful.

Made together with the Industrial Designers Pierre Charreau and Pauline Lemberger for ECAL’s “Delirious Home”-Exhibition at the Milan Design Fair 2014. Delirious Home won the “Best Exhibition” prize!
