Invention of the Day: Handheld Device Is Like Shazam For Fonts


London-based designer Fiona O’Leary’s graduation project from the Royal College of Art is a nifty little device that captures and identifies typeface and colours — beaming the samples directly to a nearby computer or storing the information for later.

While it’s merely a prototype, Spector is basically a dream tool for graphic designers and creatives who often encounter inspiration in the real world. Wired referred to it as “Shazam for fonts” but also pointed out that one major obstacle in its development may lie in its ability to aid in design theft. Check out the video below!

DIY of the Day: Technology to Help You Avoid Technology


We recently featured Bratislava-based web designer Slavomier’s social media warning label mock-ups (click here for previous post). Well New York-based artist Chino Kim takes things a step further with Screeners — basically a pair of glasses that become opaque (effectively blinding the wearer) when in view of a computer, smartphone or television screen. A webcam is used to identify the offending screen and trigger the glasses to respond.

While the project emerged from a personal desire to combat the overwhelming amount of technology that surrounds us, Kim started to take things more seriously after enrolling in a course on machine learning and dabbling with the idea of a machine not only being able to recognize itself, but help save us from ourselves! Learn more about Kim’s project over at Motherboard.
