Sentient City Survival (via Boing Boing)


Over at BoingBoing, there’s an interesting video of surviving a Sentient City.  Some of the technology is out there now, others as BoingBoing states is vaporware, but I can see this being something that would actually be relevant to day to day living.

Check it out at Boing Boing:

Mark Shepard’s “Sentient City Survival Kit” video shows a series of experimental designs for devices intended to jam surveillance, control and boredom in everyday life; there’s a commuter’s coffee cup that networks with other commuters’ cups to form covert, train-long mesh-networks; a CCTV-foiled umbrella studded with infrared LEDs, and more interesting, if somewhat vapourware, gizmos.
