AR lets customers virtually preview furniture designs in store
Brick and mortar stores still have a few benefits over web retailers, with the biggest being the ability for customers to try out products in a way they can’t online. But they can’t even offer that bonus if the items aren’t currently in stock. We’ve already seen Poland’s A+D use augmented reality to trial store designs through lifesize projections. Now Vizera is leveraging AR to enable customers to virtually visualize products in a range of different designs. READ MORE…

Cirque du Soleil is dancing with drones
Take a real-life Fantasia, then set it about five years from right now, and you’d probably end up with Sparked, the short film you see here. A collaboration between famed entertainment troupe Cirque du Soleil and the university ETH Zurich, the plot is simple: an electrician short-circuits a fuse, bringing lamps in his workshop to life.

This ring lets blind people read non-Braille books
One of the problems with Braille is that it’s typically printed in specialist books aside from the copies created for sighted people, meaning that those with sight difficulties can’t borrow their friends’ books and need to seek out the bookstores and libraries that cater for them. In the past, we’ve seen projects such as Thailand’sMr. Light and Mr. Dark — which uses special typography to enable the blind and non-blind to read the same book. Now the FingerReader initiative from MIT provides visually impaired readers with a wearable ring that can scan written text and read it out loud. READ MORE…

Toluene Tank Zimoun

Using simple and functional components, Zimoun builds architecturally-minded platforms of sound. Exploring mechanical rhythm and flow in prepared systems, his installations incorporate commonplace industrial objects. In an obsessive display of simple and functional materials, these works articulate a tension between the orderly patterns of Modernism and the chaotic forces of life. Carrying an emotional depth, the acoustic hum of natural phenomena in Zimoun’s minimalist constructions effortlessly reverberates.” bitforms nyc
