Titled Home Within Home Within Home Within Home Within Home, the giant installation represents two previous residences the artist lived in at 1:1 scale, one structure inside the built with jade-colored silk evoking the feel of a 3D blueprint. The smaller structure is a traditional Korean home where Suh grew up a child which he then suspended inside a replica of his first residence in the United States, a modern apartment building in Providence, Rhode Island. The piece is so large that visitors are invited to walk inside and virtually explore it which you can do through May 14, 2014. Learn more over at Lehmann Maupin and MMCA.

Google & Motorola into Patent Throat Tattoo Phone. »

image

The companies’ latest patent application is for an electromagnetic throat “tattoo” that contains a power supply, an embedded microphone and a wireless transceiver, and can connect to a smartphone, smartwatch or Google Glass.

The point of these devices, according to the application, is to let people in noisy areas interact more easily with their other, voice-based devices. Want to make a phone call in a raucous stadium? The tattoo, once placed on your neck, would pick up only the sounds coming from your throat, so whoever you’re calling could hear you over the Bleacher Creatures.

Sometime in 2014, New York City’s agreement with its pay-phone vendor will expire—the final death rattle for a technology long eclipsed by mobile devices.

Vertu, the world’s leading provider of luxury mobile phones, has launched VERTU TI, a new contemporary smartphone powered by Android. Based around a titanium case that has been used for its strength, elegance and low weight, VERTU TI also uses leather accents as well as the largest sapphire crystal screen ever engineered at 3.7 inches. The sapphire crystal renders the screen virtually scratch proof and it is tested to be four times stronger than other smart phones in terms of impact resistance. VERTU TI’s titanium case is around five times stronger than other smart phones.

The result is a phone that feels solid and beautifully crafted in the hand while offering unrivalled durability.

Google has released the first official promotional video for google glass, the augmented reality glasses they unveiled back in 2012, which should be available to the public sometime toward the end of 2013. The video highlights what is perhaps the device’s most interesting new feature: hands-free voice augmented display. To start a command simply speak to yourself. “okay, glass” you say, and then you can tell your glasses to take a picture, translate your words into another language, make a call, or send a message. widely understood to be the next generation of smartphones, google glass represents the future of mobile technology (and also maybe the beginning of the cyborg revolution).
