I took a trip to Home Depot and here is a list of interesting soft related items I found:
1. Bendable Retrieving Magnet. I think magnets are very fun to work with and I am quite amazed by the flexibility of this small piece of magnet strap that can reach almost any place that small metal objects can fall.
After researching on inflatable silicon objects and installations, I knew I want to make something coming out of the wall. There were many different directions to take yet I was most interested in making a “kissing wall” with multiple lips that will respond to the user’s relative distance to the object. Due to time restrain and limited knowledge in 3D modeling, I made a mini lip blowing bubble as a starting point.
Sea cucumbers are commonly found on deep seafloor. Their unique gelatinous tissue allows them to control their buoyancy which gives the flexibility to crawl on the ocean floor, actively swim or float from one location to another.
