Designer Samuel Wilkonson developed the Biome, a flora terrarium which he describes as a “living Tamagotchi”. The water levels, climate and nutrients can be controlled via an app on your smartphone or tablet. According to the designer, “the idea promotes ‘digital downtime’ by finding an alternative use for smartphones and encouraging their owners to consider a slower life. The control and nurturing of a real mini eco-system takes patience and care, contrasting with the immediacy of messaging or tweeting that is so characteristic of the smartphone generation.”
