Drone Aviary von Superflux

Dieser Film ist Teil eines Design-Fiction-Projekt, mit dem sich das Londoner Designstudio Superflux über das soziale, politische und kulturelle Potential Gedanken macht, das Drohnentechnologie abseits des Militärs haben könnte. Mehr dazu hier.

The Drone Aviary reveals fleeting glimpses of the city from the perspective of drones. It explores a world where the ‘network’ begins to gain physical autonomy. Drones become protagonists, moving through the city, making decisions about the world and influencing our lives in often opaque yet profound ways.

Dabei erinnert mich das Video teilweise an Robot readable world von Timo Arnall.

Haunted Machines – Die Videos

Haunted Machines war eine großartige Minikonferenz innerhalb der FutureEverything-Konferenz in Manchester im Februar. Nun sind die Videos der Vorträge da.

A mini-conference inside FutureEverything 2015, hosted and guest curated by artist and designer Tobias Revell, and FutureEverything’s Natalie Kane, Haunted Machines reflected on the narratives of magic and hauntings pervading our relationship with technology and began to analyse why these narratives exist, what they mean and what they do.

Internet of Things – Filtrat 15/2015


Warren Ellis im Interview bei Imperica zum Internet of Things (IoT):

your networked house works through the kindly offices of various small start-ups. What happens when the people who run your front door for you suddenly shut down overnight? What happens when the houselights get bought out by Amazon? And you have to install a new app to heat your home because Apple owns that business now? What happened to your life that you outsourced the operation of your front door to a bunch of kids in the Mission District who pay $15 for artisanal toast in the morning?

Diese Woche kam auch das Video von Ellis‘ Abschlusskeynote bei der FutureEverything. Internet of Things – Filtrat 15/2015 weiterlesen
