DIY of the Day: Technology to Help You Avoid Technology

1464795731962782

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.

Booooooom Reader Submissions: June

june2016-600

Here is this month’s Reader Submissions post! Please share your work here if you’d like to be considered for a feature on Booooooom. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.

One of the things that makes Booooooom unique is all the encouraging comments people send back and forth on these monthly submission posts. If you’re going to share your work please take an extra second to leave a nice comment on someone else’s work!

Voting up work is like high-fiving that person and it also helps us see what work you guys like! Remember, even if your work isn’t featured on the main site these posts can send some decent traffic to your portfolio! The link at the bottom will open up this full post, simply scroll down and use the Disqus commenting system to submit your work.

 

Submission guidelines:

1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.
