What is Next Nature?

With our attempts to cultivate nature, humankind causes the rising of a next nature, which is wild and unpredictable as ever. Wild systems, genetic surprises, autonomous machinery and splendidly beautiful black flowers. Nature changes along with us.

Nano Product: Nico

Nico is cute, cuddly and serious about your child’s health. Many adults smoke around children with no thought for their developing lungs. Covered in nicotine-sensitive nano-cloth, Nico monitors your child’s exposure to secondhand smoke by changing from brown to black. Log into the website or simply glance at the Nico keychain to see if your child is around a smoker – and if it’s time to fire the babysitter.

From the NANO Supermarket product collection. Designer: Vincent Hammingh. Enabling technology: Nano sensors. Feasibility: High.
