In the recent past, patents on our genes have been purchased. Are we still the sole proprietor of our bodies? From this question arises a sense of arrested freedom in one's most intimate, solitary state. A mix of ready-to-wear and couture pieces is presented with artist Lawrence Malstaf -who specializes in the interaction between biology and physicality. Models float in the air, embryonic, seemingly weightless and in a meditative suspended animation. Metamorphosis is suggested through intricate enmeshing of materials.

Cicret Bracelet Review I’ve been optically discerning some people reblogging a set of gifs or video of the ”Cicret Bracelet” some equipment that sends out an image projected from the bracelet to the skin of your arm. I don’t take too long to authentically read about the “product”, read about the group and visually examine the video to come to the overall conclusion that it’s most likely a sizable voluminous scam. The group is asking for 700,000 euros in order to make a prototype, just for 1 bracelet, though the first 300,000 euros is going towards an app. Now mundanely when someone wants to kick start a conception, they would make it, show it off, and then go and do whatever a person does on indiegogo or that horrible website Kickstarter to try hard to get money. Not having much and asking people to insert their money into a PayPal account where it is to be never optically recognize again on their main website. -It would require an immense colossal ass projection bulb while projecting something outside daylight

Andrej Pejic joins Sofia Coppola's The Little Mermaid cast Sofia Coppola's live action adaptation of Hans Christian Anderson's The Little Mermaid has just acquired its first star: Andrej Pejić. According to IMDB, the androgynous model is set to play "Sister #4" and will likely portray one of Ariel's mermaid siblings. Pejić is the first name attached to the film project. Emma Watson was previously rumoured to star as Ariel herself, although she told reporters in April that she hasn't been offered the role and hadn't seen the script. Either way, Pejić's casting adds even more intrigue to the highly-anticipated film, which sees Coppola venturing into Disney-level blockbuster territory for the first time. According to earlier reports, Coppola's adaptation will take be more kid-friendly, although it will retain the Anderson's original tragic ending, which sees the mermaid sacrificing herself rather than kill her prince.

Ex Machina Movie Review & Film Summary (2015) Real science fiction is about ideas, which means that real science fiction is rarely seen on movie screens, a commercially minded canvas that's more at ease with sensation and spectacle. What you more often get from movies is something that could be called "science fiction-flavored product"—a work that has a few of the superficial trappings of the genre, such as futuristic production design and somewhat satirical or sociological observations about humanity, but that eventually abandons its pretense for fear of alienating or boring the audience and gives way to more conventional action or horror trappings, forgetting about whatever made it seem unusual to begin with. "Ex Machina," the directorial debut by novelist and screenwriter Alex Garland ("28 Days Later," "Sunshine"), is a rare and welcome exception to that norm. It starts out as an ominous thriller about a young programmer (Domhnall Gleeson) orbiting a charismatic Dr.

Chameleonic gemstones map brain activity across headdress Fashion studio The Unseen has created a gemstone-encrusted headdress that changes colour in response to varying energy levels in the brain. Continuing her work with colour-changing ink, The Unseen founder Lauren Bowker worked with gemstone company Swarovski to form the Vicenza headpiece. Over 4,000 specially grown stones cover the top of the headdress, formed from overlapping layers of leather that cover the wearer's forehead, temples, tops of ears and back of the neck. The Black Spinel stones are coated in Bowker's signature ink, which responds to different climatic conditions. Acting as conduction insulators, the stones absorb energy loss from the head and change colour as the levels vary. "It works on every person we have tried," Bowker told Dezeen.
