    Radical Sensing is a body of work rooted in the sense of smell. Radical Sensing imagines a future in which people have chosen to replace their noses with a "super smelling" neuroprosthetic or a “post-nose”. The super smelling neuroprosthetic amplifies, isolates and records scent with hand gestures and customizations to your post-nose. We chose smell as a place to study, to explore designing for the non-rational, intuitive and emotive aspects of brain computing. We spoke to experts in computational neurology, anaplastology and brain computer interface hardware. Additionally we collaborated with an independent perfumer. While developing this body of work, we created a new methodology which we are calling "performative prototyping" that led us in a different direction than if we had taken a more conventional approach. Radical Sensing looks at neuroscience, physical computing and performance research to explore the potential of designing for a radical augmentation of smell and radical prosthetic.

        News from Somewhere looks at how a potential crisis in the service/immaterial economy affects society differently. The project explores the ideological role of crisis in perpetuating liberal doctrines while hinting at notions of a shared burden, empowerment, and freedom promoted by digital liberalism. The films use an algorithm that analyses different historical economic data from a variety of countries. The algorithm then determines which country was closer to a situation of crisis and then chooses the respective story, creating an ever changing nonlinear narrative. For each set of data a new film is created.

              • Introducing the Empathy Engine

                Being part of this project was an amazing experience of understanding how an SDK works and how it can be deployed. To add to the experience was the incredible nature of the project, developing a programming language to allow computing devices to have empathic feelings towards their users! The sheer volume of research required to contemplate the undertaking of such a visionary project was harrowing to say the least but the development team together with its researchers were able to get off a grand start. This could just bring science fiction to life, the potentials of empathic computing are endless. Of course this would all be wonderful if it were real. This is one of a series of diegetic prototypes for my MA Design Management thesis on the use of Design Fiction as a means of exploiting near future innovation and raising creative and insightful discussions on the possibilities of technology and culture. Design Fiction is a form of speculative design research that allows you to ignore the orthodox methods of creation and explore ventures that might seem impossible or foolish. By creating parallel worlds where these foolish approaches make sense it is possible to trace back your steps to more plausible innovations. It also allows to raise questions on otherwise overlooked aspects of current technologies and predict future patterns. This project was a part of the CEDE Project a collaboration between Lancaster University, Sheffield University and University of Central London which looks into creating empathy in digital devices. Inspired by the Voight-Kampff machine from Phillip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep and Ridley Scott's Bladerunner this project is looking at different means and approaches at how empathy functions in us as humans and how it could possibly translate into the digital world. Raising questions about what empathy is, why is it needed and what exactly is the nature of our relationship with our devices. http://projectcede.org http://loomingtomorrows.tumblr.com Also viewable on the related MobileRadicals page on youtube: https://youtu.be/64GntbVwIGw Tools: Adobe After Effects, Audition, Illustrator, Photoshop, and alot of moxy!

                    This is a speculative design video experimenting with cinematic features of drama and and theatrical traits for the goal of optimal emotional impact. It serves to evoke discussion and debate about our current capacity to change, addressing the threat of our lives being at the governments mercy, and the role of social media's influence on global politics. Premise: Nuclear warfare is still the number one threat to mankind--not global warming, or man-made disease. While progress has been made by several continents promising to never create nuclear weapons, and some countries even disarming, efforts by the UN and world leaders have not been able to achieve global nuclear disarmament. And with the rise of social media, global protests has been exponentially increasing in monthly numbers over the last 30 years, influencing the actions being taken on a political scale. My research and projections were based on the following questions: What would would it take for mankind to evolve into a world where international conflict was resolved by peaceful means? What would have to happen in order for the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament currently in effect by the United Nations to finally achieve its objectives with the participation from world leaders? With the beginnings of social media showing an influence on holding accountable public figures and creating transparency on authority figures (just to name a few cases like: FIFA, Freddie Gray, Ferguson, McKinney, #BringBackOurGirls--where currently, several African countries have decided to team up on efforts to take down Boko Haram). Does social media have the potential to be the catalyst for attracting global engagement into these affairs to ensure leaders are taking swift action? Projection: It takes the worst to happen for the threat to finally be taken seriously. A nuclear bomb hits its own founder, America. Putting the world in immediate threat of global warfare that prompts the world leaders to take swift action to prevent it. Instead of returning the attack, superpowers combine efforts to remove the administration responsible (possibly North Korea with China taking over). The world must rebuild from this attack, allowing room for unconventional and innovative practices to adopted as alternative resolutions for solving international conflict. The Video: A woman journeys atop a hill to remember the loss and the events that took place in the US where she grew up. She reflects on the historic damage done and the devastating losses she experienced. As a result of this tragedy that takes place in the USA, it has a massive global impact that finally moves global leaders and the world's people to make changes with the way countries resolve conflict today. She reflects on these events and how it served that tragedy seemed to be the only real catalyst for the world to see past differences and find common ground in their aspirations for a more peaceful world. How social media became the unexpected factor for the world to realize their power to effect change. Pressuring the political structures to adopt produce special powers to the UN to create new international institutions and enforce innovative alternatives for peaceful conflict resolution.

                      Last week we released our video report on the autonomous human drone taxi. We raised lots of questions with this video, but we also have the answers! We compiled an interview session on the background, our thoughts and intentions of the Autonomous Human Drone Taxi report. http://lab.moovel.com/blog/making-of-autonomous-human-drone-taxi
