Crawling Gold

A proposed suite of tools and interaction study exploring the possibility of harvesting sustainable materials in urban areas based on MIT Media Lab research into 3D printing with chitin. The suite of tools developed based on both scientific research into cockroach behavior and rapid prototyping with physical models. This iterative exploration focused on the physical interaction that this proposed new user would have with both the urban environment and the task of harvesting chitin.
