3) PROJECT 1 INFO:
An experience called “Petting Zoo” created by a design group called Minimaforms. Instead of rubbing cute goats and furry rabbits, you get to cozy up to snake-like tubes hanging from the ceiling. These are very responsive tubes, bending and moving and changing colors based on how they read your movements, sounds and touch. They might pull back shyly if they sense a large group approaching or get all cuddly if you’re being affectionate. And if you’re just standing there, they may act bored. This is meant to provide a glimpse into the future, when robots or even artificial pets will be able to read our moods and react in kind.
