An artist from the MIT Media Lab has created an interactive painting of a dandelion field, where viewers can blow on the seeds and watch the glowing sparks fly, fall and give life to new flowers. Jie Qi, a doctoral student at the lab's High-Low Tech group and graduate in mechanical engineering, intersperses electronic design with paper and textiles to create novel concepts like Pu Gong Ying Tu (translated as Dandelion Painting).
State-of-the-art: The head is created with malleable material using soft-bodied mechanical engineering and nanotechnology. It contains realistic pores that measure just 4 to 40 nanometers across (there are 10million nanometers in one centimetre)
