Such a beautiful film about a hugely interesting concept. It reminds me alot of other Royal College projects that I have seen. They are what I call parasite type designs. They use resources that are being already used or produced to deliver other experiences. I think I remember from a good few years back a project that was a bug which fed off the heat from a lampshade being on. The bug was a mini radio that held enough power to play music when the lampshade was on and also the shape of the shade helped direct the sound.
