  2. How can an object control its own reproduction?

    Cloning Objects presents an alternative scenario in which a collection of products are each embedded with all of the information needed for their own reproduction. Scanning the object with a software interface allows a user to “inspect” the components of an object, revealing files for reproduction with digital fabrication, schematics for electronic components, and the source-code for any software used to control the object. The autonomous objects and their components are made accessible on an individual level, and can be freely shared, modified, and redistributed.

    Cloning objects is a collaboration between Jesse Howard, Leonardo Amico, Tilen Sepič, and Thibault Brevet. It is an extension of the Hacking Households project originally presented at BIO 50 in 2014.

  3. Time’s Up - a project from Future Labs at Parsons the New School for Design

    This devices is designed to solve one common roommate issue that many people have.

    Have you ever had one of your roommates occupying the bathroom for too long? “Time’s Up" is a little device that is designed to be a kindly reminder for the occupiers. By using Cloudbit, the user can send their concern to whoever is in the bathroom by pressing the button online. The signal would trigger the device to play an annoying song to remind the person in the bathroom that he or she has been in there for too long. When the song stops, the bathroom lights would be turned off by the device.

    The current prototype allows the user to do everything but controlling the existing light system.
