End of Life Care Machine

Who needs people anyways ;)

This is the Last Minute Robot. It consists of a padded caressing arm and a mechanical recorded voice designed to guide and comfort dying patients with a carefully scripted message. Created by Dan Chen, an artist, designer, and engineer who just graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with an MFA in Digital + Media, built the machine as one of a series of functional robots capable of reenacting human social behaviors.

“The device is activated, and an LED screen reads “Detecting end of life.” At this point, the doctor exits the room, leaving the patient alone by him or herself. Within moments the LED reads “End of life detected”, the robotic arm begins its caressing action, moving back and forth, stimulating the sense of comfort during the dying process. Simultaneously, the robot annunciates the patient’s name using the script below, while stroking the patient through death.”

Oh my God! I want one of these!!

French designer and woodworker Malet Thibaut just released this limited edition “Art Toy” undoubtedly inspired by the iconic LEGO figures.

Geometric Porn App

“Unfortunately Geometric Porn App was rejected and suspended by Apple and Google.
Tons of blogs and pages have been filled by the people with complaints about these censures. In response to that I decided to give the APK file for Android to the users. Go to the official website to download the app into your Android device.

Apple: Reasons for Rejection:
16.1: Apps that present excessively objectionable or crude content will be rejected.

Geometric Porn is Something abstract existing in thought or as an idea but not having a physical or concrete existence. Visual geometry containing the non-explicit description of sexual organs or activity. Arising in the mind it intends to stimulate erotic rather than aesthetic or emotional feelings.

GeometricPorn is a project by Luciano Foglia, a multidisciplinary visual artist. He has been working in the design industry for over ten years focusing on interactive design, code based animations and music. His personal time is spent exploring new ways of expression in music and art, working from his studio in London, Hackney Wick.”

Why not add a shot of technology to the mix? LiteCubes are freezable nontoxic plastic 1″ blocks that light up.

Each LiteCube contains an FDA-approved freezable gel. You can use LiteCubes to keep your drinks cool without watering them down. But the star in each cube is the LED.
