I’ve known about E. Chromi for about a year now and actually have been in contact with Alexandra Ginsberg, but what reminds me to post this here is visiting the London Design Museum, where Ecrhomi was displayed. Here is a video explaining the iGEM project. Really interesting and forward thinking about synbio and biotech. After which made a short visit to Royal Collage of Art where I met Anthony Dunne and some second year students in Design Interactions, where Ginsberg herself had studied. I really enjoyed the work that they do, but so far I am most interested in looking at technology as a medium and the applications and ethics of new technologies.
David Bowen’s Growth Modeling Device scooped up the grand prize in the Art Divistion category. The system attempts to replicate the daily growth of an onion plant.While lasers scan the onion from one of three angles, a fuse deposition modeler creates a plastic model based on the information collected. The device repeats this process every twenty-four hours scanning from a different angle. After a new model is produced the system advances a conveyor approx. 17 inches so the cycle can repeat. The result is a series of white plastic models illustrating a simple organic phenomenon from different angles.

NYC-based product development studio Pollen Design has teamed up with Swiss kitchenware manufacturer Dalla Piazza to create NuScup, a first-of-its-kind, innovative adjustable measuring scoop with a unique co-molded seal that facilitates the measurement of both dry and liquid ingredients. Co-molding is a high-end precision process where two parts are molded together in such a way that a bond is created between them. This bonding gives the softer part more structure as it is bonded into the stiffer part. NuScup’s simple snap-apart construction makes cleaning a breeze, and also has an integrated magnet for convenient placement and easy access
