From robots and smart sports apparel to pearl earrings that double as a phone: In the new Digital Nature exhibition by bayern design, the center of excellence for design in the state of Bavaria, it's all about digital innovation. Visitors to the exhibition, held in Munich Airport's Terminal 2 until May 15th, will experience nine exhibits providing an exciting preview of how digitization will transform the way we live and work.
A highlight will be the MIRO robotic arm by the German Aerospace Center (DLR), which can be used to assist surgeons at the operating table. The Blue Pearl by Nova Products is a real pearl earring with an integrated Bluetooth headset linked to the wearer's phone. PUMA and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Design Lab will present athletic shirts and shoes containing algae or bacteria that are designed to enhance performance. The structural changes in the living cells are digitally analysed and athletes adjust their activities based on the feedback.
LabCampus GmbH, a 100% subsidiary of Munich Airport, offers a look at the smart city of the future. The LabCampus innovation center at Munich Airport invites research institutes and start-ups to benefit from ideal collaboration conditions on a 500,000 square meter campus where they can develop, test and launch new products and digital services.

Digital Nature now follows Simply Move as the second entry in the five-part exhibition series "Bavaria designs – Lifestyles of the Future" by bayern design in cooperation with Munich Airport. The remaining three topics will be "Discoverers", "Well Connected" and "Smart Living".
