MediaLab Europe has created a flower that blooms everytime someone signs on instant messenger (IM). The flower is "...creating personalized ambient communication links to enhance a sense of presence and togetherness between two distant individuals." I like the idea as usual but the IM application does not work for me. There has to be a good use for these devices but I can't put my finger on it right now.
One company that is close is Ambient Devices. Checkout this earlier post about them.
