Point & Shoot | PostlerFerguson

Postler Ferguson is “a multidisciplinary design consultancy that explores issues of technology, culture and economics through design strategies based on thorough research”

Point & Shoot is an attachment for a gun which captures an image of the target and person firing the gun each time the trigger is pulled. This project constructs an objective history of violence, recording not only the more dire uses of a weapon but also the most banal [ ]

The Death Machines Series bring the contradictory experience of weapons into the home; admirably designed and aesthetically fascinating and simultaneously terrifyingly in their lethality [ ]

Hye Yeon Nam - please smile

Please smile is an exhibit involving five robotic skeleton arms that change their gestures depending on a viewer’s facial expressions.  It consists of a microcontroller, a camera, a computer, five external power supplies, and five plastic skeleton arms, each with four motors.  It incorporated elements from mechanical engineering, computer vision perception to serve artistic expression with a robot.

Audiences interact with “Please smile” in three different ways. When no human falls within the view of the camera, the five robotic skeleton arms choose the default position, which is bending their elbows and wrists near the wall. When a human steps within the view of the camera, the arms point at the human and follow his/her movements. Then when someone smiles in front of it, the five arms wave their hands. Through artwork such as “Please smile,” I would like to foster positive audience behaviors.

Samsung Galaxy Note. Feel Free!

Written by Valentina on . Posted in advertising, stuff


Introducing the new Samsung Galaxy Note, a new kind of smartphone that is designed to meet all your needs. You can use it for work, play, browse the web, take photographs and even write. It has a large and immersive screen but it’s still thin and light (the 5.3″ display is the largest screen size with smartphone portability). But the best feature of this device is the S Pen. Using it provides you with the ability to freely capture and create ideas while you’re on the go. Everywhere.
It’s the most advanced pen input technology, loaded with amazing features like pressure sensitivity, preciseness, speed and more. You can easily sketch drawings or write notes with accuracy and ease.
Take a look at the video below to see how it works!
