Pulsating Clothing that Mimics Bodily Response

Here’s some prime weirdness. For Technosensual, an Austrian exhibition at the MuseumsQuartier Wien, Dutch firm Local Androids produced “Like Living Organisms,” a fabric that mimics your organism’s natural activity when you’re upset, nervous or … interested.

The “skin” and “veins” that compose the garment beat visibly in the company of others, then deflate when touched as a “sign of trust”, according to the designers.

The hand-painted outfit includes two sensors and air pumps. When a person approaches you, one sensor makes air flow through the outfit’s “veins”, simulating a pulse. The second sensor flattens the veins when you are touched.

From the designers:

It is made out of a silicone named ‘dragon skin,’ the same silicone is used to make props for the film industry, like masks or flesh wounds. We painted it with a special silicone paint named 'psycho paint.’ The psycho paint is also a form of silicone and can be mixed with regular oil paint or pigment to give it color. We carved skin textures in our molds so when we painted it with thinned reddish psycho paint the skin texture became more visible as you can see on the skin texture closup picture. Then another thin layer of base skin color to give it more depth and finally we added some freckles. The beautiful thing about dragon skin is that you can mix it close to the transparency of human skin. And then build it up like layers of skin starting with the base color then adding a layer of red and finishing with another layer of base skin color.

In the future where we’re all androids anyway, garments like these could probably be used to simulate vestiges of our organic origins.

“Like Living Organisms” the simulated veins on the garment gently pulsate via air pumps. As another person approaches, the pulse becomes more rapid as a symbol of excitement, threat or perhaps even love.

Cordova-CLI & PhoneGap-CLI do not see android sdk
This question has received: 5 Votes.

I’ve created app with “phonegap create” command. Then I switch to project dir and try to run it with “phonegap local run android” and I have next error message:

Please install Android target 17 <…>

Android SDK is placed to C:\dev\sdk My PATH variable contains C:\dev\sdk; C:\div\sdk\platforms\;C:\dev\sdk\platform-tools I run “android” command from cmd and SDK Manager shows no updates or no missed sdk files. I tried create and run project with cordova cli but had same problem. What can it be?

It seems that for latest Cordova (3.0.6),

cordova platform add android

command only recognize Android 4.2.2(API17) SDK. After I install the API17 SDK, the error was gone. Not sure if there is a cordova command option that can specify SDK version.

I had just the same problem (error message) with os x (10.8). After executing the command android in the Terminal some android-packet-management-UI popped up. There i could install stuff that made it run ..

I had API17 installed but was still getting this error.

I needed to install apache-ant, set ANT_HOME=C:\Program Files\Java\apache-ant\, JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_21\ and add both bin’s to my PATH += C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_21\bin;C:\Program Files\Java\apache-ant\bin

I had the same problem and the very most simple way to resolve it is changing the target in project.properties to 16 and try.

it seems if you type “android” at the same command prompt you type your cordova commands, you get a separate Android SDK manager then the one launched via Eclipse and so then there you select the appropriate packages and updates to achieve the version number of the Adroid SDK required. For me I’m guessing it’s from an adt-bundle I installed with _? (I don’t know actually no clue) that runs instead. My best guess is the installer when updating doesn’t doesn’t update the path correctly.

Ya you need to manually correct duplicates and anomalies in the path. Point to the “sdk” folder and tools of a valid most current adt-bundle-windows folder. Maybe it was NetBeans that did this? No it seems plausible when I put an update of Eclipse (C:\Library\Dev\Android\adt-bundle-windows-*) I must have not realized I needed to update the path too having done it manually the first time to get it to work.

It seems I needed plateform-tools added as well for adb to run the emulate command…

C:\Library\Dev\Android\adt-bundle-windows-x86_64-20131030\sdk;C:\Library\Dev\Android\adt-bundle-windows-x86_64-20131030\sdk\tools;C:\Library\Dev\Android\adt-bundle-windows-x86_64-20131030\sdk\platform-tools;

Bing’s New Apps For iOS And Android Focus On Finding Deals, Local Offers

Microsoft’s Bing is confusing to carve out a niche for itself on mobile by focusing on a forms of common searches and information requests people need to opening while on a go. To that end, a organisation this week rolled out new iOS and Android applications with comforts like a barcode scanner for cost comparisons, a apparatus to find a cheapest circuitously gas prices, and, on iOS to start, a new deals browser.

The modernize is some-more critical for users on Android, as a iOS app before enclosed some of these features. For example, Bing before introduced a cost comparison underline when it launched account 6.1 of a iOS app in December, that also introduced things like Uber integration, GIF support, a griddle finder, OpenTable integration, and a strain and film finder.

Now, users on both platforms will have opening to that same underline set. With a barcode scanner, that is launched by long-pressing a hunt icon, Bing will feeling adult a intent in doubt and relapse ratings and prices from critical retailers, including Amazon, Walmart, Target and others. For users on iPhone 6s or 6s Plus devices, a barcode scanner is also now permitted around 3D Touch – we usually force reason a Bing app statue to opening a option. Similarly, on Android, we can enlarged press a hunt statue to launch a scanner.

Both apps also now consolidate arrangement with GasBuddy for expecting a nearest, many affordable gas prices by presumably poison for “gas,” or by accessing a “gas” choice from a “Near Me” section.

Finally, a iOS app has been updated to make it easier to stand deals. This is an increase on a surpassing deals feature, where deals would seem directly in a hunt regulation  –  such as when we searched for a restaurant, for instance. In a new app, we can stand deals right from a homepage of a app itself. This domain will also arrange a deals by proximity, that can be useful when you’re looking for a bargain on dinner, or on something else you’re offered for

In a new app, we can stand deals right from a homepage of a app itself. This domain will also arrange a deals by proximity, that can be useful when you’re looking for a bargain on dinner, or on something else you’re offered for, while out and about.

The underline is also powered by integrations with third-parties, including services like RetailMeNot, Groupon, DealsPlus and others. That creates it some-more useful than rising those sold deal-finding apps on their own.

Microsoft says this underline will arrive on a Android app “soon.”

The organisation is holding an enchanting position in a bid to competition with Google, whose possess hunt app leads people to regulation hosted on a possess site – including, in new years, information it pulls from web pages and thereafter places during a tip of hunt regulation in an bid to produce “quick answers” for things like inner film showtimes or circuitously restaurants.

Instead, Microsoft is pulling in a lot of a information from third-parties, including also services like Foursquare, Yelp, Facebook, Uber and more. Effectively, it wants to settle itself as a go-to finish for accessing a other apps on your phone.

For instance, if you find a Groupon bargain on a inner attraction, like a museum, while controlling Bing, a app could prove we to reviews on TripAdvisor and Foursquare; it could assistance we get there by arrangement we directions in Apple Maps or Google Maps; assistance we book we a boyant on Uber or Lyft; or expose we some-more information about a finish on sites like Wikipedia, Twitter or a company’s possess website.

For an crook like Bing, this is not a bad devise – users are suitable tender with a array of apps on their phone, and are bend to comforts like unsentimental assistants, and other portals, like Google Now, to get things done.

The new Bing apps are permitted now on the iTunes App Store and Google Play.
