    3D Printed Cast
    Gear  |  Projects  
    Called the Cortex, the 3D printed cast pictured above is a concept and prototype designed by a Victoria University of Wellington graduate with the suspiciously awesome name Jake Evill, the Cortex cast is lightweight, ventilated, washable and thin. Made from a complex honeycomb structure, it allows for air and water to circulate, as well as making it possible to scratch and clean your skin. Sounds wonderful. Made out of polyamide, the casts take about 3 hours to make, while regular plaster casts take 3 to 9 minutes. With advances in 3D printing technology however, we may see the Cortex in hospitals within the next few years.

    Surveillance Cameras Wear Party Hats for George Orwell  s Birthday
    Gear  |  Projects  
    To celebrate the 110th birthday of George Orwell, surveillance cameras in the center of the city of Utrecht were decorated with colorful party hats. By Dutch art group FRONT404.
    "George Orwell is best known for his book ‘1984’, in which he describes a dystopian future society where the populace is constantly watched by the surveillance state of Big Brother. By putting these happy party hats on the surveillance cameras we don’t just celebrate Orwell’s birthday. By making these inconspicuous cameras that we ignore in our daily lives catch the eye again we also create awareness of how many cameras really watch us nowadays, and that the surveillance state described by Orwell is getting closer and closer to reality."

    Dress Moves and Glows When Someone  s Looking
    Gear  |  Design  


    Fashion designer Ying Gao brought in robotics designer Simon Laroche to help create (No)where (Now)here, two dresses that activate when someone looks at them. The dresses are equipped with eye-tracking sensors. When the dress detects a person's gaze, it moves and lights up in the dark. The undulating dresses are mesmerizing to look at. The fabric moves like gentle waves, making them look alive, like some strange ocean denizens. The interactive dresses' movements come from tiny motors. The lighting effect is generated by photoluminescent thread.
    Ying Gao’s statement reads: “A photograph is said to be ‘spoiled’ by blinking eyes — here however, the concept of presence and of disappearance are questioned, as the experience of chiaroscuro (clarity/obscurity) is achieved through an unfixed gaze.”

    Doctor Who  Fans Fund Campaign to Send TARDIS to
    Gear  |  Projects  


    2013 is the 50th anniversary of DOCTOR WHO. A group of Doctor Who fans have put together a successful Kickstarter project to send a TARDIS-shaped satellite into Earth’s orbit. Good idea! The TARDIS satellite has already been built and will be equipped with a GoPro Hero 3 so that it can capture the view from above the world. The Kickstarter campaign has about one more day to go, but it has already surpassed its funding goal of $33,000. The launch is being planned to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, which is on November 23, 2013.
    "The TARDIS is built. That's right. We've completed the satellite. The satellite is constructed from really light weight aluminum (because weight is a huge issue) and it is a scaled-down version of the actual TARDIS. Our satellite is only about 1 foot tall - because again, weight is a major factor. However, the light on top functions (powered by solar cells in the windows.) And that means that when we put this thing in space, there will be a TARDIS with a blinking light orbiting the Earth. SWEET!
    But then we thought, what if we put some other stuff inside? So, we did. There is a camera, a GoPro Hero 3, regularly recharged by the solar panels, which will take photos of the Earth from orbit. It's not the Hubble or a spy telescope, but it should give us some pretty sweet pics. A magnetic, passive attitude control system is in place which will keep the TARDIS's camera pointing toward the planet

    iPhone Dock With BuiltIn Smoke Detector
    Gear  |  Projects  
    The Sense+ isn’t just a concept though; it’s an actual product and it’s currently up for funding on Indiegogo. The Sense+ features a photoelectric smoke and gas detection sensors that can detect cold smoke that other systems might not be able to detect.
    "‘Photo-Electric’ smoke sensors are the latest (and in most cases the best) smoke detectors available. They can detect deadly cold smoke that some traditional smoke alarms have difficulty sensing. By combining the photoelectric sensor with a carbon monoxide (the gas that makes you too sleepy to wake up) sensor you get secondary technology as a backup which may work better depending on the nature of the threat.
    If smoke is detected, an alert will sound and the Sense+ App will start up on the iPhone. If there is no response, an alarm will sound and the app on your phone will call numbers listed in your home call group. An alert screen offering emergency services will then be displayed."
