Grow an interactive tree

The Interactive Tree is a #LowHighTech version of Edge of Chaos, a work by the Interactive Architecture Lab and Soft Robotic Matter Group.

The workshop teaches children about electricity and recycling. Participants use an assortment of e-waste and repurposed objects to build an interactive tree, which has roots, a trunk, branches and remote-controlled origami fruit. Assembled using a kit developed by WoeLab, the completed interactive tree becomes a connected artefact that that responds to touch with sound, light and movement.

Come discover its super-properties!

This workshop was designed by children at Lycée Français de Lomé, in Togo, with support from the WoeLab team. The tutorial for replicating the workshop will be available on this page in early April.
