Link: “Google’s Body Browser is a Google Earth for Human Physiology”

“Google has mapped just about every traffic artery you could ever want to locate on Google Maps, but what if the thruway you’re looking for isn’t on any road atlas? To help you tell your axillary artery from your common carotid, Google has created a G-Maps-like searchable guide for the human body that lets you zoom, scroll, and search for every muscle, gland, nerve, bone, or organ in our common physiology.”

Link: “Blackberry Empathy Concept”

“For their sponsored project held by RIM Blackberry at the Art Center College of Design, designers Kiki and Daniel had to incorporate an interface that integrates human emotions with the concept of social networking. The result of this exercise was the Empathy concept. The phone is used in conjunction with a biometrics ring that is worn by the user to collect “emotional data”. Spec-wise it features a transparent OLED screen that becomes transparent when not in use and opaque during interaction. The front is all touch surface, while on the back there is a physical keyboard.” Weiterlesen bei Yanko Design. Weitere Informationen: The Dotted Line (‘Your Blackberry can do what?”)

panoptICONS – Utrecht 2010

“panoptICONS’ addresses the fact that you are constantly being watched by surveillance cameras in city centres. The surveillance camera seems to have become a real pest that feeds on our privacy. To represent this, camera birds – city birds with cameras instead of heads – were placed throughout the city centre of Utrecht where they feed on our presence. In addition, a camera bird in captivity was displayed to show the feeding process and to make the everyday breach of our privacy more personal and tangible. panoptICONS is a project by Thomas voor ‘t Hekke and Bas van Oerle who work together by the name of ‘Helden’.” Mehr bei

Link: “Defacebook”

“In August, I sat down with the founders of the new social-networking system Diaspora. Earlier that day, they’d given me a peek at the prototype for the service, which looked familiar: It had “status statements” and comments and photos, displayed on a clean, neutral interface. But as the name suggests, their project was intended less as an imitation of Facebook than as an escape route from it — a path to freedom for those who had come to fear the dark side of the social network.” Weiterlesen bei New York Magazine
