The Brainwriter is an opensource project created specifically for ‘TemptOne’ a famous street artist, who developed ASL, with the aim to help him continue to create art, even without the use of his body… And while being created originally for him, it was specifically designed as opensource to bring this technology to the masses, and allow others to experiment.

The Brainwriter is similar to other neuro-readers with sensors that are placed on the head, only now, they are 3D printed, connected to opensource software and designed to print what your brain wants to say… which in the case of TemptOne, is to create art using on his brain.

This created spontaneous interactions, letting people on the street come face to face with another citizen from New York or Amsterdam. The credits goes to Eigen Fabrikaat (DDB Group) and Minivegas.

A while back you’ll remember an amazing ‘Pepsi Max Augmented Reality Bus Shelter Ad’ that we featured where a video feed showcased the footpath through the ad and some amazing augmented reality visuals then came to life.

This ‘Into The Storm’ Augmented Reality Ad is made by the same guys, and streams a live feed of the road in-front of the AdShell through to passers by on the other side. So at a glance, it looks surreal and almost normal, that is, until the Augmented Reality part kicks in and starts to shoot lightning bolts, create tornados and release other weather effects that look like they are happening right up that road in-front of their eyes… Pretty cool! Have you guys seen other similar ads?

Meet ‘Heart Bot’ an experimental drawing machine created by Intel, SMS Audio and Sid Lee as a digital art installation for guests at the Intel ‘Biosport’ headphones launch at The New Museum in NYC. Heart Bot is an experimental machine controlled by the heart rate of its audience.

Interactive with the experimental drawing machine was easy, hands were placed the pedestal for about thirty seconds and the sensor would track their heart rate and send it to the robotic arms, in turn, starting the draw in real time. Heart Bot was modelled after a robot called HEKTOR and a drawing robot called the PLOTCLOCK. Love it. What do you guys think?

GoogleX: Project Wing Delivery Drones

So Amazon hyped their drone delivery service, and now Google follows suit, with GoogleX Moonshot ‘Project Wing’ which is code for Delivery Drones that are being testing in Australia.

Google’s ‘Project Wing’ drones are delivering first aid kits, candy bars, dog treats, and water to Australian farmers during the testing phase. Perhaps the reason for the tests in Australia is because of the UAV laws in the US vs the non-existant laws in Australia right now.

So the question is… Can the likes of Google/Amazon actually get delivery drones off the ground and make them commercial? Or will Drone Laws win? Love to see your comments below…
