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.
