Auger Loizeau James Auger, Jimmy Loizeau (Auger Loizeau) project, critical, body
James Auger and Jimmy Loizeau have been collaborating on projects since the concept of the Audio Tooth Implant was first conceived in October 2000. Industrial Design heretofore has mostly been concerned with the process of bringing products to market, making them desirable and therefore saleable. With a slight sideways step: removing the commercial aspect from the requirements of the object, it can adopt a whole different agenda, questioning the process that gives birth to it rather than blindly conforming to it. In this way design can comment on consumer culture, the role of products and the ubiquity and function of technology. It becomes a tool for questioning rather than problem solving. Through the development and dissemination of speculative and critical products and services we hope to instigate a broader analysis of what it means to exist in a technology rich environment both today and in the near future.
AVALON Prof. Dr. Thomas Fischer (AVALON) research, textile, hybrid, technology, shape memory alloy, sma,
Principle objective of the AVALON project is the cross-sectoral development of novel hybrid textile structures integrating multifunctional Shape Memory Alloys (SMAs) and the related processing techniques as well as design, simulation and organisational methodologies. They will enable the integration of such textile structures into novel high performance products in the fields of smart wearable systems and textile reinforcements for technical applications. The broader aim is to create new market perspectives in the textile sector by introducing emerging and highly promising non-textile technologies.

BEE's Susana Soares 2007 ecology, technology, designer, biology
Bees have a phenomenal odor perception. They can be trained within minutes using Pavlov ̕ s reflex to target a specific odor. BEE ̕ S explores how we might co-habit with natural biological systems and use their potential to increase our perceptive abilities. The aim of this project is to develop collaborative relations between scientific and technological research, beekeepers and design, among others, translating the outcome into systems and objects that people can understand and use, engendering significant adjustments. The object depicted provides a diagnosis using bees to detect general health through breath.
Bluescreen Viktor & Rolf 2002 catwalk, innovation, screen, haute couture, fashion, company, designer, brand, bright blue garments, reflective textile
Viktor & Rolf enigmatically named their collection "long live the immaterial." It was hard to decipher precisely what that meant since the collection was full of rather heavy materialsówool, pinstripes, fur, velvet, crochet. The designers' talent for earnest experimentalism with traditional elements was funneled into a single device this season; they highlighted all-black outfits with bits of vivid royal blue so that the epaulettes, collars, bib shirt fronts and belts popped out in radiant color.

Cati Vaucelle Cati Vaucelle (MIT Media Laboratory) avatar, biological, science, healthcare, hybrid
Through an interdisciplinary lens that brings together engineering, art, cognitive science, and healthcare, I explore the anthropomorphic nature of hybrid physical/digital objects and their promise to be catalysts towards unforeseen discoveries. I design objects to offer anima and perspective: from the haptic jacket that an autistic patient wears to express to the doctor what it means to be sensory defensive, to the electromagnetic field detector bracelet that transforms invisible information into visible data for a feeling of empowerment, or an environment where instead of you taking care of your avatar in massive online games, your avatar turns around and takes care of your biological needs.
