That’s Interesting 27.07.18

From Acorn’s debit card to Intermarché’s The Taste of Colours,  here’s some things that made us say “That’s interesting” in the studio this week.

Heavy Spending

US-based micro-investment platform Acorn has just launched its first physical product – a debit card designed to nudge consumers to spend mindfully. Made of tungsten, a rare heavy metal, the card hopes to subtly remind users of the value of money.

The Taste of Colours

French supermarket chain Intermarché has just released a video to promote its new range of additive-free foods. In the short-film consumers take part in a taste test where they are asked to identify the flavour of different coloured-foods which, unknowingly to them, are all the same flavour.

Smart Bandage

Researchers at Tufts University have just announced they have discovered a technology that allows a bandage to observe wounds and deliver drugs when necessary for healing. Now only a prototype, the bandage could ease doctors’ works while providing them with constant updates on their patients’ conditions.

Delicate Plywood

Product designer Zsuzsanna Horvath’s lamp series Sila is made of hair-thin plywood sheets which have been laser-cut and attached to a flexible OLED panel. The thin structures are so light they move in response to the movement in the room.
