Ambient Robotany – Breeze
Breeze is an ambient robot inhabiting the body of a willow tree. Unlike us, Breeze can visually sense and react through 360 degrees, allowing her to reach out to you and others wherever you are near. Owing to a shape-memory alloy and hidden electronic wiring, its branches rise and positions themselves towards passersby in lightly undulating waves. Responding slowly or rapidly, the tree can have a brutal or gentle reaction.
