Wireless Flower Pot for the Romantics

Cian Cullinan and Stefan Agamanolis, researchers at the MIT Media Lab Europe , are working on the One2One project, a technological infrastructure to create or reinforce a sense of presence and togetherness between two distant persons.
Their Floral Display is a plastic flower pot with a pink flower that blooms when Cian's girlfriend, Ciara, logs into her computer, and closes when she leaves.
The pot hides a simple radio transceiver and some motors that allow the flower to be opened and closed on command. The pot communicates wirelessly to a nearby computer that checks Ciara's login status at regular intervals.
