By |agosto 4th, 2020|

La interrelación entre la cultura y la empresa determina el paisaje artístico de un país. Estos dos mundos tienen realidades complementarias que revierten a la sociedad a través del patrocinio, del mecenazgo y otros modelos de colaboración. Queremos hablar de la función de la cultura como nexo conector entre la empresa y la sociedad analizando el modelo alemán y el español con representantes de los dos ámbitos y de los dos países.

Apple Is Introducing UV Sterilization So iPhones Can Self-Sanitize

By |agosto 4th, 2020|

Apple iPhone 11

Apple is working on a way for iPhones and other devices to be capable of self-cleaning. The company hopes to use heat and light to ensure the small sensors inside its gadgets are free of “unwanted organic compounds,” according to new patent applications shared by AppleInsider.

“Many mobile electronic devices are equipped with sensors and transducers that enable the devices to perform far more functionalities than communications,” one application reads. “Further, smart mobile communication devices (e.g., smartphones and smartwatches) can be equipped with environmental sensors, such as pressure sensors, humidity sensors and gas sensors.”

Apple is aiming to have various sensors in an iPhone or Apple Watch, for example, utilize their own cleaning system, harnessing an ultraviolet light to do away with any harmful elements.

The patent applications go on to note how handheld devices are “prone to organic residue accumulation, such as skin oils, dirt, body hair, etc.,” leaving products contaminated, eventually leading to interference signals and an increase in sensor errors.

As conventional methods of cleaning may not be effective, Apple will look to a system using ultraviolet light to “decompose organic contaminants inside product housing or near sensor packaging, in order to restore the clean environment needed for accurate readings of the integrated environmental sensors.”

Faz quase três anos desde que a Disney decidiu encerrar o contrato de licenciamento de seus filmes e séries para a Netflix e fundar o que viria a ser conhecido como o Disney+, um movimento que praticamente deflagrou o que o mundo conhece hoje como as guerras do streaming. E para marcar o aniversário, nada …

Vibrant Digital Portraits by Artist Alexis Franklin Emphasize the Nuances of Emotions

Dallas-based artist Alexis Franklin considers her digital renderings a reinvention of the expected. “I’ve always seen the world through a filter that brings vibrance and excitement to things most people wouldn’t notice, and that’s something that I really want to have come across in my work,” she says of her expressive paintings. Through facial expressions, gestures, and color, each work highlights the nuances of the subjects’ experience, personality, and mood.

A church videographer by day, painting is Franklin’s side-project and one for which she’s received an influx of attention in recent days. She illustrated an affective portrait of Breonna Taylor, who was murdered by three Louisville police officers in March, for the cover of O, The Oprah Magazine. The two-decades-old publication has only ever featured Oprah Winfrey. This isn’t the 24-year-old’s first high-profile cover, though: she also created a powerful rendering of Anita Hill for Time earlier this year.

Franklin often shares time-lapses of her paintings-in-progress—which you can watch below and on YouTube and Instagram—that document every step of her process. “I tend to stay in the present with my work. I don’t really imagine where it’s headed,” she writes to Colossal. “I just let each project be what it is, and then I move to the next one with fresh eyes. And I’m very grateful that each project continuously seems to find me!” (via Kottke)

Interactive Sound Object That Purrs, Meows and Hisses

By |agosto 3rd, 2020|

In 2014 Emily Groves, Jakub Pollág and Paula Arntzen, and Jackie Ford, students at the Royal College of Art in London, created “Mew”, an interactive sound object covered with fur that responds when it is approached with purring, then when stroked with caterwauling meows and to roughness with hisses.

As you walk towards the curious and gawkish object, it begins to emit a soft purring sound. If you stroke the fur, it will emit distorted meow sounds that are manipulated by the direction your hand moves. Pushing on the object will also alter the sounds, but pressing too hard will make Mew hiss.

By |agosto 3rd, 2020|

While puttering around at home, musician Lucas Brar decided to film himself holding his guitar in some of the stereotypical, albeit amusing, positions. Brar also performed a number of different songs while striking these poses, thus making all of them appear to be valid.

Nuggs 2.0, Plant-Based Chicken Nuggets

By |agosto 3rd, 2020|

Simulate has released Nuggs 2.0, a more advanced version of their plant-based chicken nuggets. This new version is lower in sodium, higher in fiber, and tastes more like real chicken than ever before.

Our new release is the most advanced chicken nugget simulation yet. NUGGS 2.0 is equipped with texture and flavor that is close to indistinguishable from animal-based nuggets. With more fiber and less sodium than our previous version.

Photographer Noah Kalina (previously) reviewed both the 1.6 release and the 2.0 release and agrees this version is far better than the last.

Long story short, NUGGS 2.0 are considerably better than NUGGS 1.6. I paired them with Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce because that’s the only sauce worth saucing, but these are good enough you could eat them without sauce. If I had friends, and I was hosting a dinner party, I would serve these to them for dinner.

Kalina was so impressed that he asked Simulate founder and CEO Ben Pasternak to do an interview. Pasternak spoke about his history, his entree into plant-based foods, his take on what makes NUGGS different from other foods, and what makes them alike.

All food is processed. We can not feed everyone without processing food. While highly processed food has a bad reputation due to the deterioration of nutrition – we are a pro process company. We believe that by processing food, we can turn food that a certain type of person might not want to eat – into something that the same person does want to eat – which is ultimately good for the planet. Seems pretty good to me. Also, the idea that animal-based meat is not processed is simply false. …We are always iterating on our products and making them better. Primarily, new extrusion technology enables NUGGS 2.0 big improvements.
