2009 solar blow bot

The blowbot concept is based on unpredictable gust of air and spontaneous movement – much like a when the wind rustles the trees. The blowbot is solar powered robotic device that senses human presence and activity. It moves around the home generating breezes which are chanelled through and inflatable textile bladder. Based on research and Philips Healthcare insights into healing environments the product concept is designed to channel nature into a room. It has been designed to visualise air by dramatically inflating and deflating to create directional gust and breezes. Unlke fans and air conditioning systems which are predictable monotonous and rythmic, blowbot simulates the unpredictable and chaotic qualities of nature
