Digital Age

Digital Cage

There was so much new talented exhibited at Tent London this September, I haven’t even made a dent in my bookmarking as yet! However, the area that blows me away  each year [there are five main areas exhibiting different genres of products] is Tent Digital which showcases the best of digital and digitally-enabled design. True that most of these products showcased can’t always be used in a residential home – but the quality of exhibits are so astounding you feel that what you are witnessing must truly be magic [at least for someone like me who doesn’t understand technology too well]!

Something that fascinated all the spectators this year was a product by Troy Abbott – who has invented a digital bird cage of sorts. The birdcage is beautiful and real, but your bird inside lives in a tiny digital screen – moving and cheeping like a real bird would! The product is described as ‘All Beauty. No Mess or Mortality.’ Genius! See the video of how it works here. See how the cage would look in your home here.
