Liquid Mood

1 / 21

Liquid Mood: A functional liquid-mood interface that utilizes the energy generated from living bacterial culture to power devices and produce light, while also providing storage.

This interface consists of revolving touch-activated hexagons that aggregate over an entire wall, producing a versatile tiling system, each of which showcases living Streptomyces coelicolor and bioluminescent algae. The swiveling tiles allot for storage or mirrors on the other side, making them more practical.

As a result of climate change, the planet proceeds to deteriorate, making the use of alternative energy sources such as biopower, imperative. The societal reaction to a living, green wall may not be positive, which is why multiple color options can provide users with a customizable experience based on their personal preference. The genetically engineered Streptomyces coelicolor and bioluminescent algae adapt their color based chemical changes or inputs, such as temperature, light, and pressure. These result in a distinct output or color. The bacteria generate colors specific to the user's mood to improve their state of mind.
