“The paradigm of clothing as protector and concealer is slowly shifting: increasingly, our bodies are becoming more and more public, while new forms of neuroimaging technology are developing that may one day allow for surveillance and interception of the contents of our minds.” say Chung and Morris.
Two Fabrica design researchers, Lisa Kori and Caitlin Morris, created a line of high-fashion accessories that can shield your thoughts from mind-reading scans. Both are interested in contemporary issues of privacy and the role of craft in technology, and came together to reconsider the role that garments might play in society and surveillance.
These high-fashion accessories carry alert wearers to Neuro-Imaging Surveillance (NIS) scans. The technology is currently used for medical purposes. It can scan the brain to see which brain activities are active so you might can see what a person is thinking or feeling.
The anti-NIS accessories have built-in sensors to detect brain scans but they cannot block the scan without heavier, less subtle technology. Instead, the pieces use lights, bone-conduced sound, or electric shocks to momentarily distract the user, thus preventing the scan from seeing their previous mental state. Kori and Morris’s anti-NIS line made its debut at the Futures10 exhibition during the Wearable Futures festival in London.

We all know the feeling when nurses wants some blood of you. They come with a needle and ask in which arm you want the needle. Rather no arm. But as good as I am, I’m a blood donor and I need to do it. They’re searching for a good vein and stop the needle in your arm. Oh, wrong, so we’ll try it again and again and again and again. Doctor can you please do it she’s having no good veins to take blood. Oh, thank you!
We all know the song of Queen and while I’m writing this blog the lyrics are in my head. Thanks to myself… But biking is the new walking. It’s for transportation, sporting and just to be cool because when you don’t have a bike you’re out.
Sharing is the standard in society, a lot of sharing communities rise up. You can share your experience, clothes, knowledge, materials, food and go on. You can also share your books online and offline.
I’m doing research to coffee shops in Gent for the Backstay, later on I tell you more about it. But this is a really funny video about a prank in a coffeeshop. Maybe we need to do this kind of marketing to attract customers to the Backstay Bar?
Girls, we love chocolate and we love traveling around the world. As I can speak for myself…. But if you want to travel around the world the easiest way you need to take a airplane. Your seat is small, because you’re not like that high business woman in first class. But yeah, you want to travel so you need to accept your small and smelly seat.
