USB-equipped urban bikes can charge mobile devices
With so many gadgets and mobile devices in common use today, keeping them all charged has become an ongoing challenge. We’ve already seen numerous efforts to help consumers do just that in taxis and atfestivals, for example, but recently we came across a new approach targeting urban cyclists. Specifically, German bicycle maker Silverback has recently launched two bikes with built-in USB ports that can charge devices as the rider pedals. READ MORE…

Hungry? Soon you may be able to print out your dinnerScientists at Cornell are developing a 3-D printer that can print meals using raw food “ink.” Using raw-food inks set up in syringes, a specialized printer creates cookies, pie and other treats. The food list is currently limited to ingredients that can be extracted from a syringe, and researchers have had success with chocolate, cake and cookies. But they think the machine could be developed to create customized menus for “fussy” customers — or that the world’s great chefs could share their patented recipes for download.

Yesterday our Brand Marketing team got the chance to experience MoMA’s new exhibition, “Talk to Me”. The new exhibition dives into design and the communication between people and objects:

The exhibition focuses on objects that involve a direct interaction, such as interfaces, information systems, visualization design, and communication devices, and on projects that establish an emotional, sensual, or intellectual connection with their users. 

If you happen to live in NYC or plan to visit soon, I would definitely recommend stopping at the MoMA before November 7th!

Here’s a glimpse of my favorite examples from “Talk to Me”:

1. Eyewriter It is a low-cost eye-tracking apparatus & custom software that allows graffiti writers and artists with paralysis to draw using only their eyes

 2. Touch HearBy touching a word or phrase, one can listen to its pronunciation or its meaning. The gadget whispers the missing information into the ear, without interrupting the flow of reading

3. Situationist App - iPhone app that alerts members to each other’s proximity and get them to interact in random situations

4. Phantom RecorderConceptual medical device that re-imagines phantom limb sensations as nostalgic memories

5. Artificial Biological ClockAn object that recieves information from her doctor, therapist and bank manager and alerts her when she is physicallly, mentally and economically ready to start a family
