iThink is coming to the store near you.

Paul Micarelli writes to us:

"With all the emerging technology that is leading the way to direct brain-machine interfaces, I got to thinking what an Apple computer might look like in the future. For my own amusement I created graphics for an Apple-branded neural implant that I dubbed the "iThink".

It's also his largest sculpture to date - nearly 11 feet long and six feet in height. This work of art will be the major attraction at Kuksi solo exhibition in NYC in November at the Joshua Liner Gallery.


Famous Works of Art Improved (if such a thing is possible)

Gizmodo published an intriguing Photoshop contest, mixing up classic paintings and modern technology. Here is the one we especially like (it almost seems like it was originally created this way) -

The lizard is a thorny devil:


They absorb moisture through their skins. Fascinating to watch.

For a modest fraction of the population, the name Citroën Deux-Cheveaux is really, really inherently funny. That said, that clip in and of itself was a real treat to watch, too.

That 2CV video just seems to prove that most car parts are completely unnecessary.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

The thorny devil actually moves the moisture around the outside of their body and direct it into their mouths. Essentially they drink by standing in a puddle. http://www.outback-australia-travel-secrets.com/thorny-devil.html

I wonder if William Gibson will get any credit for the I-think concept. His novel Neuromancer used that idea calling it a "Microsoft". Sound familiar?
