The Incredible Machine and Abstraction for the Small Screen

Take a look at some of the latest ideas, products, and visuals for the week of September 7th brought to you by our strategists, designers, and developers.

Ideas

The Incredible Machine: Gorgeous film about the research at Bell Labs in 1968, with a focus on art, sound and communication.

Slow Ideas: Why do some innovations spread so swiftly and others so slowly?

Science Isn’t Broken: If we’re going to rely on science as a means for reaching the truth — and it’s still the best tool we have — it’s important that we understand and respect just how difficult it is to get a rigorous result.

Forget About The Mobile Internet: For as long as the idea of the ‘mobile internet’ has been around, we’ve thought of it as a cut-down subset of the ‘real’ Internet. I’d suggest it’s time to invert that – to think about mobile as the real internet and the desktop as the limited, cut-down version.

Products

Lunark: A phone concept featuring a pair of screens, enabling users to work on two projects as once, such as watching Netflix while commenting about the TV show in question on social media.

dvel: People often struggle with their decisions, with your click you can really help them. Our voting system provides the fastest way to get help with your decision.

Snooz: An acoustic white noise machine is here to give you the best sleep of your life.

Visuals

Glass: A additive manufacturing process that enables 3D printing of optically transparent glass that also allows tunability by geometrical and optical variation that drives form, transparency, color variation, reflection and refraction.

Net Art And Abstraction For The Small Screen: A site-specific iPad application that visualizes this network of networks (cell towers, wifi routers, communication, navigation and observation satellites and their signals) by reversing the ambient nature of the infosphere; hiding the visible while revealing the invisible technological landscape we interact with through our devices.

How To Break The Fourth Wall: Breaking the Fourth Wall is such a creative and unique cinematic technique, but just how much potential does it have? Let’s take a look at the various emotional effects a fourth wall break can have in film.
