Researchers at the University of Lincoln, in the United Kingdom, have designed a high-tech "smart" garden that can change the way it looks, depending on the reactions of people on Twitter. The experimental garden, part of the STAN (Science Technology Architecture Networks) project, which aims to explore how architecture can reflect human emotions.
Here are more photos of the futuristic garden.
The garden's raw steel structure can move to reflect people's emotions, as interpreted by their tweets.
Specially designed software translates Twitter updates into movements for the mechanical landscape.
The experimental, Twitter-reactive garden debuted at a horticultural event, called Garden Up, in Sheffield, England, in June 2014.
Inspiring Future Architecture
The University of Lincoln's experimental garden could inspire future "smart" buildings that can remodel themselves to reflect people's emotional states.
