A Helmet That Turns Your Brainwaves Into Electronic Music

A Helmet That Turns Your Brainwaves Into Electronic Music | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it
By outfitting a motorcycle helmet with an EEG device, artist Aiste Noreikaite has created a way to turn firing neurons into heady beats.

 

From the outside, the Experience Helmet, made by Lithuanian sound artist Aiste Noreikaite, looks like any old white motorcycle helmet. But put it on, and you become suddenly immersed in your own private sound installation. High and low tones combine to form an enveloping electronic beat—all of which is composed by your own brainwaves

I's - A feature film set on the threshold of infinity

Support this project on Kickstarter! --> Set in the near future, “I’s” is a small story of humanity on the precipice of an unimaginable transformation in our civilization. - The story takes place over the last five days of our civilization as we know it, leading up to the Singularity - an utterly unknowable future in which there may be no place for us at all. We follow bike messenger Mason Turk as he faces the few final days of humanity's journey, and his choice between finding solace in the present or racing to reforge the only connection that has ever truly mattered to him.

The film moves from the urban streets of San Francisco through suburbia all the way to a pastoral community farm - and then pulls us back to the heart of the city. Along the way, it explores what it means when humans - the toolmakers - have invented our greatest tool: the device that can out-invent us.

Inspired by the Big Bang, a Suspended Art Installation Reimagines Light, Space and Time

Inspired by the Big Bang, a Suspended Art Installation Reimagines Light, Space and Time | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it

Japanese watch maker CITIZEN and Paris-based architecture firm DGT reimagine time pieces as art materials in their installation LIGHT is TIME. The duo suspended over 65,000 base plates–the foundation behind a standard watch face–to create a sparkling, golden galaxy.

Inspired by the Big Bang, the installation underscores the natural connection between light and time. Electricity and digital devices–which glow endlessly, despite the hour of the day–have separated humans with natural solar and lunar cycles. With light as the core of human livelihood, the collaborators explain that “without light we never would have had the wonders of the universes, the richness of our planet or the joy and pleasure of our life.”

Coachella's Glowing Beacons: Neon mirrors by Phillip K Smith III

Coachella's Glowing Beacons: Neon mirrors by Phillip K Smith III | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it

For this year's Coachella festival, American artist Phillip K Smith III created an installation of shiny cuboids that by day provided a series of mirrors, but by night were transformed into neon towers of light.

 

Phillip K Smith III designed the Reflection Field lighting sculpture for the annual Coachella music festival in California, to offer revelers a place for contemplation where they could "explore ideas of color theory, optics, perception, scale, and technology".

By day, the monolithic mirrored volumes of Reflection Field are prisms of earth and sky, wrapped by the surrounding environment, while hidden LED lights illuminate each block after dark, creating windows of color dotted across the space...

A Tokyo Design Firm Made Artificial Human Organs for the Post-Apocalypse

A Tokyo Design Firm Made Artificial Human Organs for the Post-Apocalypse | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it

Once that great apocalyptic event—contagion, climate change, nuclear holocaust, zombies, whatever—drowns out the huddled masses of humanity, we can take solace in at least one thing: those who remain will have no shortage of suggestions from art and pop culture as to how best to carry on.

If it's a zombie scenario, they could, for instance, go Walking Dead and form a scrappy band and shack up in a prison. If it's disease, they could hack their bodies, adding Matt-Damon-in-Elysium-style cyborg arm implants to do combat with the rich. If it's rising sea levels, they could follow one Tokyo design firm's advice, and outfit themselves with artificial organs designed to make the human body more water-efficient.
