As the connected devices around us multiply and become ubiquitous, a new challenge is arising: how do we engage with this explosion of new interfaces? Instead of just reducing interactions, what if we make them more fun, exciting, and enriching? Mimo harnesses the touch-responsive mimosa pudica plant’s natural feedback mechanism by recognizing touches and using them to control internet connected devices. This action provides us with an exciting and fascinating way to reengage with everyday interactions and encourages us to rethink the role of technology and nature in the human ecosystem.
