Aspects of the present disclosure are directed to a device with controllable lighting elements or other output elements such as audio, vibratory, gaseous/liquid, and/or olfactory output elements. In particular, the interactive device of the present disclosure can include a structure fashioned in the shape of some fauna or flora (e.g., a tree) that can selectively operate the output elements (e.g., illuminate the lighting elements) based on collected sensor data regarding the surrounding environment. The structure can also respond to specific user interactions and/or receive predetermined control signals that control the output elements.
