Addicted to Information

What will the future of information technology look like? Sound like? Behave like? Designer Lukas Franciszkeiwicz envisions a minimal, shape sorter, toy-like instrument adapted for the social networking revolution that also makes a profound statement about our modern addiction to digital interaction & how computers already dictate our decisions. Fusing mind & machine, Beta is one glimpse into how our future relationships might be with such technological concepts that may be able to predict our responses.

Beta reduces the interaction between human & machine to the three basic needs: consumption of content, communication, and processing data. Technical reflection is substituted by physical intuition.

    It’s not even a design. Just short movie with quite nice sound. Well, at least I hope it isn’t a design, because otherwise it is useless.

    So… the cube reads your mind to update Facebook for you?

    This isn’t even design. Art at best, and even then, pretty weak.

    Disappointing, Yanko, disappointing.
