A design for a large Pop-Up wall promoting Ford and Volvos Flexifuel-brand is finished for Bil i Nord. The wall measures 2,5 x 3 metres and features hundreds of bacteria happily floating around in microcosmos breaking down biomaterial and building ecofriendly (plankton-style) Bio-Ethanol.

This is the main ON/OFF-switch for Beco. Disguised as a miniature rotating warningbeacon. The rotating light is simulated by four small lightbulbs being turned on and off in sequence.
The switch has six positions with which the user can decide which program Beco shall run. The different programs so far are: Display-mode, Roam, Hide in a dark place, Seek light and Hunt.
Oh, and if you haven't guessed it allready; this rotating Beacon is the inspiration for Beco's name...

Becos eyes are made of three LEDs. The 10mm and 3mm LEDs are animated to fit the individual programs Beco will run. The 5mm LED is an IR emitter which Beco use to avoid bumping into obstacles. The black lower half of the eye contains the IR receiver which detects the bounced infrared light. This part of the eye will later be covered with a semitransparent fabric.
