The Interactive Fish Tank is an experiment in design and public interaction, blurring the boundary between the real and the virtual by placing virtual fish under real water.
Olga Bielawska has developed a technique that produces a finish on her bowls exactly like fish scales. The porcelain bowls have a skin that is pleasant to touch and combines a shiny glazed finish with a matt unglazed finsh to produce an exterior that is unique to each bowl.
I love a well designed bowl, and if that bowl has a tactile finish as well, I am sure to keep that bowl well within reach.
Although aquariums are one of the most popular ways to keep a pet and provide a soothing environment in a home, they are also one of the hardest to maintain. The effort and time it takes to clean the tanks often is the reason that aquariums are discarded. What was needed was a way to keep aquariums clean with half the effort and that is what Craig Wenger and David Turner came up with.
These best friends have always loved fish, so the no clean aquarium was sort of a no-brainer.
