A handmade, bionic flower that responds to touch (no watering required)

Hi Everyone,

Time for another installment of the weekly current 🔋⚡!! This week, we’re going to take a look at a really fun project that was designed by Jiří Praus who is an artist and software engineer based in Czechoslovakia.

The name of the project is the Floower which is a robotic flower that blooms and lights up when you gently touch its leaf:

Jiri built their first ever-blooming Flower back in January 2019 for their wife as a one off gift for Valentine’s day. It has since become a small company based around the concept. In short, it is an artificial flower made from wood, brass & Eco-friendly plastic. When touched it can open and provide over 16 million different colors of light according to the Floower website. It can serve as a lamp or fun conversation piece or both. It has an app that it can connect to so you can adjust the settings according to your needs. Pretty neat! Here’s a little more on the build process:

If you want to learn more about the Floower, check out the website here.

Do you have an idea that blossomed out of a one off project or idea into something else? Ohmify is a great place to learn, build and dream so let us know what you’re working on in the comments below! You can also share your progress in the Project Log / Show and Tell section in the Ohmify Member Forum (where you can also find lots of inspiration for your next project, too!).

Have fun everyone 😃
