There is lot of talking about values in those new business models for innovation. Makes me think whether those synthesize business and design, so that design is subordinated to business logic. Is there really space for something new to emerge from?
“People are realizing the value of access to experiences and services, rather than owning something outright, that they have in their hands. And from that moment it usually depreciates in value.”
“So I think the key lesson of what is learned in working Proto Partners is that as a business we need to spend more time focusing on desirability, what do our customers want, what are their expectations. I think by truly designing desirability, it does create experience innovation..”
I am going to run a workshop at the 2013s Transmediale, together with Alan Shapiro. The title is Software of the Future, or the model precedes the real. I am going to talk about my current research into technology and desire. One aspect of it will be about seduction as a technology of desire, which may be useful to push reversibility in new technologies.
The title of the lecture is inspired by a quote of biologist J.B.S. Haldane: “Queerer than we can suppose.”
Fashionable idea for a robotic extension of the female body. Less magical than the Dancing Shoes, which had a live on their own. But I acknowledge the stimulating features (the model, too, apparently), so in its proper application the tutu could also work well as a … massage belt, for example.
The new is terrifying. Not because it is this way and not another way, but because it is new.
