Support Local Artisans in India
Often with new technology, a sense of tradition gets left behind. With the Lotus we’re trying to bring technology and tradition together by working with artisans located in Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra in India, forging petals by hand out of metal. Combined with cutting edge neurotechnology, biosensors, and 3D printed components, the Lotus is a blend of the very ancient and the highly modern.
After all, for thousands of years, many cultures around the world believed that physical objects could become mirrors to inner states. With the Lotus we’re really trying to bring this ancient idea to life by making your flower into a tangible reflection of your mindfulness.
