Meat Stylus

Van Mensvoort
February 24th 2010

Who wants a stylus?” Words by Apple’s Steve Jobs when introducing the iPhone that uses a revolutionary input device: the finger. And it works wonderfully, yet in some situations you prefer something else.

Recently sales of CJ Corporation's snack sausages are on the increase in South Korea because of the cold weather; they are useful as a meat stylus for those who don't want to take off their gloves to use their iPhones.

Apparently the sausages, electrostatically speaking, are close approximations of the human finger.

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.
