Metamorphosis Blowbot

"The „Solar Blowbot‟ concept is based on unpredictable gusts of air and spontaneous natural movement – much like the wind rustling in the trees.

 

"The Blowbot is a solar powered robotic device that senses human presence and activity. It moves around the home generating breezes which are channeled through an inflatable textile bladder. It is powered by solar reflectors and has been designed to “visualize” air by dramatically inflating and deflating to create directional gusts and breezes.

 

Unlike fans and air conditioning systems which are predictable, monotonous and rhythmic, Blowbot simulates the unpredictable and chaotic qualities of nature."
