Vending Machine Alternative: Freshly-Made Snack Cakes

(8 years ago)
Yesterday in my photo studio they were filming what I assumed to be an industrial training video. In the morning I saw the crew loading a machine into the studio and I didn't pay much attention. Working next door in the office, I heard what sounded like an air rifle being fired in the studio, over and over again. I went back to investigate and saw this:The second half of the video above is lifted from the company's website; I'm not sure why it lacks audio, and the subtitles seem oddly truncated. In any case, you load what look like grain pellets into the Delice Magic Pop Machine and it starts spitting out multigrain snack cakes. (I tried a couple and they're tasty, if you dig rice cakes.) South-Korea-based manufacturer Delice is marketing the Magic Pop in Israel, Russia, Iran, the Netherlands, and the USA (there are Asian sandwich shops in California that have had Delice machines for years, albeit with a custard-filled variant). We might as well face the fact that we eat food produced by machines, and the Magic Pop wears its industriality on its sleeve, cranking out its healthy treats in plain view of the snacker.(more...)

Salone Milan 2011: Q+A with Thomas Lommée and the Open Structures Project at New Times New Heroes

(8 years ago)
"You can tell a lot about a society by whom it chooses to celebrate." —Woody AllenWhen we heard that Belgian gallery Z33 was holding a "sustainability summer school" during this year's Salone del Mobile in Milan, we were interested in finding out more about these New Heroes. Thomas Lommée's OpenStructures project is one of five-presentations from the New Times New Heroes show. A global dialogue four years in the making, the Project has steadily grown to encompass a variety of parts and objects all scaled according to an open-source grid system. We sat down with Lommée to learn more about the origins of the OpenStructures project, chat about learnings from the beta model and hear more about new models for adaptivity.New Times New Heroes April 12-17Privata Oslavia 8, Ventura LambrateMilanCore77: So, what sparked the start of the OpenStructures project in 2007?Thomas Lommée: The OpenStructures project was a personal project that started with a sketch at the Institute Without Boundaries, in Toronto. I was looking for a more sustainable way of building, constructing and designing. On one hand, modularity is one of the core principles of sustainable design because it allows for flexibility in your design. It allows for objects to shrink and to grow and to adapt. And then on the other hand, there's this development of open source thinking and open source development within software, which allows for people to build further on other people's designs.And[..]
