Snotty switches

These switches by Katrin Baumgarten are meant to evoke repulsive feelings. One switch has a snotty substance oozing out of its pores when you approach it. Another switch has hairs that it moves, and yet another is a shy switch that retracts when you come near. This exploration is definitely one away from designing for function or usability, but these things do prepare us for a future where technology is more sensitive and feels more biological.
