In the dystopian future of The Matrix, humanity has been converted into a renewable crop by energy-starved sentient machines, with “farms” of human bodies harnessed and harvested for their metabolic output. It’s one of those disturbing sci-fi premises which can leave one suspicious of artificial intelligence, robotic vacuums, and the whole “internet of things” trend. But maybe Agent Smith and his robotic compatriots were onto something in regards to the human body as a renewable energy source. The ‘e-pulse conductor’ is a pendant without a chain, harvesting bioelectricity from the human body’s neurological system, “plugged” into the spine via pincer interface. Industrial design graduate student, Naomi Kizhner of Jerusalem’s Hadassah College envisions jewelry one day serving purposes beyond adornment, a three-piece collection connecting and converting the human body into one gigantic battery for biological data feedback. Energy Addicts’ entomological-styled accessories hints of early David Cronenberg at hisbest/worst, the jewelry’s macabre beauty furthered by how each piece is worn: sharp pincers and stings pierce skin, establishing an “interface” between body and each bio-electrically powered accessory. Blood Bridge: designed to tap directly into the action of ulnar artery – the body’s main blood vessel – the pulmonary flow of the heart spins an enclosed wheel to generate electricity.

The A.I. Fashion Installation.

AI is an incredible fashion and installation series, interpreting the concept of artificial intelligence.  Through a series of images, the idea of an ever-present intelligence is presented, in an ethereal and interprative manner.  AI is often thought of as an extension of human intelligence, something that will extend our capacities beyond what is possible with our organic sentiments.  Already today, one might say that we’ve surpassed our intended knowledge – a nearly infinite amount of information is ever present, accessible at the whim of our interaction with our digital devices. The collection was photographed by Ben Sandler, set designs were created by Bonsoirn Paris, and the hair and makeup were styled by Audrey Robion.  Finally, the styles are from Lea Taleb & Laura D. Sainteff

Pinokio – Real Life Pixar Lamp


pixar_lamp-t2

The Real-Life Pixar Lamp called Pinokio has come to reality with awesome artificial intelligence technology. The lamp you saw in the Pixar animated movies, has been designed in the real to stand on desk and amuse you with its incredibly funny and dynamic gestures. Book lovers like it most because it makes possible for machines to interact with humans in a quite decent way while staying on study table. I wish it could jump like the virtual Pixar Lamp. The lamp is designed antique by Victoria University students Shanshan Zhou, Adam Ben-Dror, and Joss Doggett using Processing, Arduino, and OpenCV. It has a tiny camera for facial recognition and eight sensors to detect movements. Not just that, it listens to the sounds in environment and understands what is going on around. Is someone playing hide and seek with him? Well he understands those gestures too. The mass production of this lamp will start after developers get the safety approval license.
