We LOVE this…The PiO LEECH
Aristarkh Chernyshev specializes in spawning cybernetic-bionic-electronic art and futuristic form factors. He recently re-fashioned a smartphone as an Annelid, a.k.a. a slithery, slimy LEECH. This genetically modified, ‘personal information organism’ (‘GM PiO’) is an ingenious mobile phone designed to integrate with your life and charge itself via YOUR BOD. Enveloped in a sticky polymer with a viscoelastic texture (remember ‘Wacky Wally’!), this little leech is a lovely, functional wearable gizmo and MUST-HAVE accessory!
Described as “your personal trainer, your personal doctor, and your inseparable friend and adviser”, the PiO is a leech-looking translucent electro-mechanical device/phone that conforms to your contours and harnesses your ion fluxes and electrical energy. Yep, like a cute little alien parasite from the future, the PiO sustains itself by absorbing electrostatic discharge, bio currents and various elements present in our bodies, such as sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium.
The PiO is fully wireless, works off the cloud and exploits edge computing. It collects and analyzes medical data, metabolic info and uses AI to keep you in tip-top shape. Aristarkh, always the creative cross-pollinator, put together a crack team of neuroscientists, engineers and art freaks to make this hybrid version 1.0 happen.
“Without noticing it, a person lives in symbiosis with many micro-organisms that make up the flora of their intestines and skin,” Aristarkh explains. “In the post-anthropocene era, the time has come to bring the symbiosis of humans and other organisms, including those created by humans themselves, to a new level. PiO is just such an organism.”
PiO is next-level awesomeness! And Aristarkh’s work is epic! Watch the demo and explore the work here. We reckon Ray Kurtzweil will love this and Grimes/Elon will gift X Æ A-Xii one this Xmas. Watch the demo NOW!
