That’s Interesting 25.10.19

From Seaweed Nappies to AI Art, here are some things that made us say ‘That’s Interesting’ in the studio this week.

Technical Prayers

Religion is often seen as a relic of the past, but with inventions like the eRosary, it’s being pulled into the modern world. Rosary’s have been used to assist with praying for generations, but now they can do so much more. The eRosary can be used in a similar way to a Fitbit, tracking health and linking to a wellness app, but along with this, it assists, guides and tracks prayers – helping you make the most of your spiritual connection. Not only that, but it looks super swish too.

Art-ificial intelligence

We’ve always known that computers are smart – but creative? Maybe so. Parisian trio ‘Obvious’ have created the first AI-made Art pieces to go to auction. Inspired by historical works, the computers have been coded to create imagined portraits. They’re slightly blurred, eery, but also fascinating. While some dispute the pieces, Obvious are determined to prove that this new style of work will disrupt the art world, citing that ‘Creativity isn’t just for humans’.
