BIY™ is the world’s first belief-based computing kit, that turns popular beliefs and superstitions into 0100110010. Most technology is made for you to blindly believe in it, but BIY™ lets you create and hack with your own logic and beliefs!
Our BIY™ kits are built with state-of-the-art machine intelligence software, translating vernacular knowledge and popular wisdom into playful and educational electronic kits: Tinker with cameras that can see luck, microphones that interpret your destiny, and compasses that can help point you to harmony.
Believe It Yourself is a commission for 'Uncanny Value' at MAK Vienna for the 2019 Vienna Biennale.
Our BIY experts: Azure Yang, Carmelo Ferreri, and Saurabh Datta
