The exhibition jury of PRIMER18 (Conference for Design, Strategy & Future, organized by Design Futures) has nominated my Speculative Design projects:
'BioTronicols' and 'TeethMussel', for the PRIMER 18 Emerging Designer Exhibition in 2018.
My project is one of the nominees chosen from 76 entries from 23 institutes/organizations across the world.

Now that we all have our smartphones with touchscreens, we get almost no haptical feedback. As a response to what we are lacking, tactility will become more and more important. In these living electronical products, ‘Biotronicols’, the skin of the products is the important tactile factor.
It can feel warm or cold, soft or with bumps, there are even hairs growing out of the buttons. Maybe you can feel a hartbeat…
It is a living electronic device. Living cells growing over and in a shell and PCB. The cells and the electronical parts communicate with each other via electrical synapses and chemical synapses. The product gives haptical feedback and needs to be touched. It can be charged by putting it in a bowl of nutricious gel, which it obtains through its gills at the backside. It can also communicate with other living products out of the same range, with a cord.
