'aura' by viktor kölbig
'aura' is the newest development by the german based designer viktor kölbig
conceived as an object that can be
seen as a modern mixture between nature and technology, a module packed with sophisticated and
yet invisible sensors that allows you to use any plant or flower as an interface to control LED lighting.
a brief touch of any part of the plant allows you to turn on the source, changing the colors of the illuminations.
built out of a milled aluminum case and a diffused water-proof scratch proof cover, a programmed micro
controller is hidden in a separate small box to control the LED RGB light modules.
