Love & Hate

Array
Gear  |  Projects
Love & Hate” by Nifer Fahrion of NifNaks, three full scale weapons rendered in wool felt: a fragmentation grenade, brass knuckles, and a Glock handgun, Each piece was painstakingly hand made from Merino wool, with no foam or wire structures underneath. 
"I spent hours upon hours stabbing the wool, watching as it compacted and distorted. Then I added more wool, continuing to stab and watch it form in unpredictable ways, and continued again… With such an intense focus with the intention of recreating these weapons realistically, I became intimately familiar with the objects. I was fully present in the experience of observing the subject of my gaze. Thus, these sculptures become only the documentation of my mindful meditation on them. "

And  it also has an iPod with R2-D2 sound effects and connected it to a small portable speaker system. The whole entire thing only cost about $75 in parts (iPod not included)!

Pedestrian Guidance System For Crowded Places

Gear  |  Projects
Researchers at Tokyo’s University of Electro-Communications have developed a concept to guide crowds of pedestrians to walk within buildings and stations where crowds may be disordered, using lenticular lenses to stimulate the visual field. This weird looking flooring is designed to end that problem, by subconsciously nudging people over so they walk on the right.
The floor uses lenticular lenses like those cheezy postcards that change depending on your viewing angle, only in this case the tile sections shift from dark to light in a pattern that moves over towards the right. This tricks your brain into following the direction the pattern appears to be moving, over towards the right wall.

1-Bit Symphony by Tristan Perich.
"Tristan Perich's 1-Bit Symphony is an electronic composition in five movements on a single microchip. Though housed in a CD jewel case, 1-Bit Symphony is not a recording in the traditional sense; it literally "performs" its music live when turned on. A complete electronic circuit—programmed by the artist and assembled by hand—plays the music through a headphone jack mounted into the case itself."

Cliff Thier's Kickstarter brainstorm has already tripled its goal with 45 days to go.
"My invention, the iKeyboard, addresses the one drawback of a tablet computer — the impossibility of touch-typing on its virtual keyboard.
My solution is to provide the feedback missing from a virtual keyboard by 'grafting,' or piggybacking, a real keyboard onto the screen. My invention — the iKeyboard — will sit atop the virtual keyboard and be lightweight. It will add little bulk and not increase the footprint of the tablet. It will be easy and fast to deploy and remove.The iKeyboard will improve accuracy and typing speed, letting tablet users do real writing

L train dining experience, Check out the video!
"On the first of May we hosted a "luncheon" on the L line of the New York City subway. The subway is a familiar place, providing a necessary means of transportation for many New Yorkers. Its stairwells, turnstiles, platforms, trains and unpredictable elements are all-too-familiar to its dedicated patrons. One begins to know the exact time of travel from one destination to another. One begins to intuit the conditions of a ride, anticipating smooth stretches and knowing when to brace for a jarring turn. Through a series of familiar gestures, presented in commonplace locations in unfamiliar ways, we set out to challenge a habitual experience."
