Disney Research Pittsburgh has turned plants into multi-touch sensors. Talk about augmenting reality...wow.
The world will now be able to communicate digitally through plants. Maybe this will enable us to communicate with plants...I don't know, but I'm sure someone is working on that extension.
Can you imagine a Disney park where every plant could play music to you based on your touch, or could trigger light and sound displays? The implications are pretty freaking awesome.
I look forward to seeing how the mouse is going to push this incredible innovation out to the world.
