Art Is Motion: Lexus 300h Mod Paints Driver’s Picture Based On How They Drive. [Video]

Art Is Motion: Lexus 300h paints a portrait of the drive based on how the drive.

Art collector Walter Vanhaerent’s Lexus 300h paints his portrait each time he takes it for a drive. From Gizmodo:

“The specially modified vehicle is half art project, half engineering experiment. Vanhaerent’s Lexus features a large LCD display that shows his portrait being generated by custom software that paints it in the style of artist Sergio Abliac. The slower Vanhaerent drives, the more detailed the portrait will be, and the faster he drives, the more abstract the brush strokes become.”

Cool project but unfortunately, the “Art Is Motion” mod doesn’t motivate the driver to go slower, on electric power alone; if Mr. Vanhaerent is feeling abstract, he’ll just floor it. One additional tweak, that only outputs a painting if the driver drives slower, and this ‘art’ project becomes a standard feature on all Lexus models. [Gizmodo]

Buying Dupé Bottled Air Is Just Plain Stupid. Buying Bottled Water Is…. [Video]

Dupé - Purveyors of fine bottled air.Brought to you by the purveyors of fine bottled breathing air – Dupé.***

Avoiding bottled water is easy – drink tap water. If you want to drink tap but you forgot your water bottle, drink water out of a sink with your hands. If you don’t have any hands, have somebody turn the water on for you and put your mouth on the spigot. I could go on but I think most people get it. Finding safe, drinkable tap water isn’t difficult.

Sprāv – The Wireless Smart Shower Meter That Will Tell You When To Get Out. [Video]

Sprav - The Smart Shower Meter.Ok, who’s in for shortening their next shower? For the few that did raise their hands, Sprāv is the product for you. Designed by students from Case Western Reserve University, Sprāv is a wireless water meter that gives you control of your water and energy consumption. Sprāv attaches to the arm before your shower head and uses green, yellow and red lights to let the shower taker know how long they’ve been showering. The goal of the changing lights is to encourage users to shorten their showers.

We’ve seen shower shorteners in the past (ie Waterpebble) but what makes the Sprāv different is its ability to track your shower and instantly report to you how much you are saving by changing your showering habits.

Sprāv is now on Kickstarter. [Sprāv]
