With new electronic and rapid prototyping tools, cheap microprocessors and sensors, 3D printers and printed electronics the world around us can be hacked, twisted and extended with functionality that it is not supposed to have. Everyday physical objects, both living or artificial can be made interactive, responsive and digital: living plants that control music, human bodies that transmit sound, touch screens on water and 3D printed interactive eyes. We can enhance our world with new experiences and functionality that will educate, delight, entertain us and make our lives better in countless ways that are yet to be invented.
