Auger Loizeau: Audio Tooth Implant - The Audio Tooth Implant is a radical new concept in personal communication. A miniature audio output device and receiver are implanted into the tooth during routine dental surgery.

Toys - Tommaso Lanza - In 2005 ENT International filed for bankruptcy protection under Chapter 11 in the US and progressively closed or sold all of its international operations. The quick collapse of the company led to a fire-sale of most of ENT's assets. In the months following the Chapter 11 filing, the liquidation team split the enormous sale across a number of auction dealers. - , , , , , - posted by dpp - 2014-11-10

Staging Silence - Hans Op de Beeck - 'Staging Silence' is based around abstract, archetypal settings that lingered in the memory of the artist as the common denominator of the many similar public places he has experienced. The video images themselves are both ridiculous and serious, just like the eclectic mix of pictures in our minds. - , , - posted by dpp - 2014-07-07

TED 2008: Crow vending machine maker Joshua Klein - Boing Boing - Technology hacker Joshua Klein built a vending machine that teaches crows to deposit coins they find into a special vending machine that dispenses peanuts. He has been studying crows for over ten years and has learned that they are very intelligent. Their brain/body weight ratios are similar to chimpanzees. He's showing a video of how a crow learned to use a tool to pull an object out of of a tube. It's impressive. - , , , - posted by dpp - 2014-07-07

Vinay Venkatraman: Technology crafts for the digitally underserved - Two-thirds of the world may not have access to the latest smartphone, but local electronic shops are adept at fixing older tech using low-cost parts. Vinay Venkatraman explains his work in "technology crafts," through which a mobile phone, a lunchbox and a flashlight can become a digital projector for a village school, or an alarm clock and a mouse can be melded into a medical device for local triage. - , , - posted by dpp - 2014-05-26

Growth Assembly | Sascha Pohflepp - After the cost of energy had made global shipping of raw materials and packaged goods unimaginable, only the rich could afford traditional, mass-produced commodities. Synthetic biology enabled us to harness our natural environment for the production of things. Coded into the DNA of a plant, product parts grow within the supporting system of the plant's structure. When fully developed, they are stripped like a walnut from its shell or corn from its husk, ready for assembly. -- @jjj i post this because i think it shows another interesting blend of natural and technological systems. - , , , , - posted by dpp - 2014-05-14

World’s Slowest Surveillance Cams To Produce a Single Image in 100 Years - "It's a little disconcerting to know how many of our day-to-day movements are being recorded in real time, what with CCTV, security cams, and smartphone wielding strangers. And while Google Streetview's taking short-term before-and-after shots of our cities, one artist wants to capture a city's evolution over a hundred years in a series of extra-extra-extra-long exposure images.
