e-Protea is a 3D-printed IoT-enabled flower sculpture inspired by the M-CPU from Nnedi Okorafor’s From the Lost Diary of Treefrog7. The plant is imagined as evolving from e-waste. 3 TFT screens on the plant’s leaves are fed images influenced by Twitter activity from ESP-32 MCUs while a large screen in the plant’s main flower shows hybridized imagery inspired by the story. Every two minutes, this screen also shows observers video footage of themselves captured by a USB camera in the plant’s base.
