As Einstein once said, "curiosity has its own reason for existng," and designer Peter Dalton has put that to the test with his ‘Touch Powered by Intrigue Concept.’ By placing these, according to YankoDesign.com, "weed-inspired protrusions" in busy malls and sidewalk areas, he proves not only that people are innately curious, but that they satisfy their curiosity through touch.
With piezo-ceramic cores embedded within each stem, each physical interactive causes them to flex, which in turn generates a current used to light the head of each ‘weed.’ Hence the notion, ‘Touch Powered by Intrigue Concept.’ This self-sufficient product yields the "the possibilities of a deeper understanding of human behavior have for future products and services, especially in relation to power consumption and energy sources."
