Pollution has never been so fashionable: A pair of NYU grad students have created a high-tech sweatshirt emblazoned with pink lungs that suddenly show blue veins when exposed to dirty air. (via Grad students create color-changing clothes that detect air pollution)

The Urban Speaker is an art installation that transforms public space into an instant stage for mass communication. This portable urban furniture allows people to broadcast their voice in public by calling a telephone number from their mobile phones. A QR (Quick Response) barcode on the sign allows some mobile phones to instantly access the website for location, event and other details as well as quick dialing of the installation’s phone.

Light Form is a patterned light wall that is revealed and created when the user folds back small wenge wood panels. Some elements of Light Form hold an inner light made of electroluminescent film, while the rest of the elements increase the perception of light just using the white of its surface.

Making Future Magic: iPad light painting explores playful uses for the increasingly ubiquitous ‘glowing rectangles’ that inhabit the world. BERG uses photographic and animation techniques that were developed to draw moving 3-dimensional typography and objects with an iPad. In dark environments, we play movies on the surface of the iPad that make 3-d light forms as they move through the exposure. Multiple exposures with slightly different movies make up the stop-frame animation. /via @calebkramer

Paillard Punch is concept centred around punch cards and connecting the past with the present through sound. Each visitor will receive their own punch card onto which they can perforate a unique pattern. They can then put them into the card reader and the pattern they punched will appear lit up on a linen screen.

Protagonist-Antagonist consists of earthenware collection copied through the process of 3D-scanning and 3D-printing. These clones, the antagonists, were placed in front of the archaeological objects. Visitors could take these objects in their hands and with their fingers follow the traces drawn half a millennium ago while looking through the glass of the vitrine at the real untouchable object. The 3D-printed clones thus mediate the archaeological objects through tactile feedback.
