    In this paper, we describe and define the range of possible applications and the technical contours of a robotic biotechnological system to be worn on the body for playful interactions. Moving from earlier works on Wearable and Modular Robotics, we describe how, by using modular robotics for creating wearable, it is possible to obtain a self-sustainable and flexible wearable system, consisting of freely inter-changeable input/output modules that through the use of solar, mechanical, and other sources of renewable energy are able to suit some specific tasks. Here, we drive the attention on early prototypes to show the potentialities of such an approach, and focus on depicting possible application in the future of electronics domain. Indeed, our artistic experiment is a clear example of how to scale down electronics to an eco-sustainable level, which can still create playful and useful interactions for many application domains.
