Skin conductivity sensors are used to deduce the emotional state of the sleeper. This information is brought to 3-D studio where a script is used to transform this into physical forms. Objects can be 3-D printed and keep as a physical mnemonic device to keep the dream memories from slipping away.

Creating tangible objects that are physical manifestations of dreams can have personal, social and psychological benefits. For example, tangible dreams can be worn as unique accessories or collected for personal remembrance. The tangible dreams can also be shared between friends and family to deepen relationships.

De conceptuele overeenkomsten tussen 'future cool' en nextnature zie ik niet. Maar inderdaad staan daar een flink aantal dingen die in dit nextnature log niet zouden misstaan. Wie vist ze eruit?

Check the similarities to the nextnature concept on this website: http://www.coolhunting.com
Also check the previous "future" pages on this "coolhunting" site (links below).

I would be interested in seeing the differnce in dreams of a CEO of a big company and a primate. Since the primate is really evolved and the CEO is not off course..

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
