At a Recent Meeting Of The Council For the Internet of Things, researcher Jean Baptiste presented his work on DIY Transducers. His project represents the possibility of creating transducers made out of organic materials that can grow and decay. Through his research he was interested in exploring how technology built from organic compounds could interact with both humans and natural environments.

According to Baptiste, while normal objects made from static materials such as plastic represent a sense of human control, transducers made from organisms have the stronger ability to interact and develop with their environment. Objects created in this way would offer less determinate results and thus could evolve in unpredictable ways. An alleviation of control by human design would invite a more interactive relationship between technology and nature.
