Face-Morphing Robot

I have no idea what this could be used for. But I do know that caricaturists around the globe will be out of a job.

Mittels vier Injektionsnadeln und chinesischer Tinte zeichnet diese Maschine, ein
dauerhaftes Symbol auf die Oberfläche des menschlichen Körpers.
Ähnlich einer Prothese wird Kurt an den Körper montiert und fixiert,und dadurch
technischer Bestandteil des Körpers. Gewisse Hautschichten werden durchstossen,die
natürliche Schutzschicht des Körpers wird durchbrochen,es entsteht
eine Wunde, in die die Maschine Farbe hineinträufelt. Die Farbe als Teil der Maschine
wird nun zum Teil des menschlichen Körpers,mit freiem Auge sichtbar.
Durch diesen Eingriff entsteht im Bewusstsein des Gezeichneten eine enge Verbindung
mit der Maschine,die ebenso dauerhaft wie die Zeichnung selbst ist.

Robot translation:

By means of four injektionsnadeln and Chinese ink draws this machine,
a permanent symbol on the surface of the human body. Similarly a
prosthesis "Kurt" is installed and fixed to the body, and thus technical
constituent of the body. Certain Hautschichten is broken through to break through, the natural protective layer of the body, it develops a wound, into the machine
colour instilled. The colour as part of the machine becomes now partially the human body, visible with free eye. From this intervention a close connection with the machine in the consciousness of the drawing, which is just as permanent as the
drawing, results.

Holy Rolly!!

Looks like Sony isn't about to just cede the portable audio player market to Apple without a fight - word has it that the giant electronics company is currently working on a new class of Walkman known as "Rolly". It features an easily-gripped egg shape design and comes with an integrated speaker and a 'choreography' system which most probably involves changing lights or music in tandem with movement. This leak did not contain a release date, so stay tuned for more information. Does the Rolly's form factor sound as though sales will take off in the long run? I think most people prefer their electronics to come in a sleek design without causing too obvious a bulge in their pants pocket.Rolly Show
