Life = Art

Here are a couple of real-life (if speculative and fanciful) glimpses into the Uglies universe.

First this one . . .


What is that? A special? A pretty with some fairly heavy flash tattoo action?

Nope. It’s a Claritin makeup ad.

And check this out . . .


And eyescreen? Well, yeah, sort of.

Implanting a micro-camera directly into the eyeball may be a future solution for restoring sight to people with damaged vision, according to this patent application. The camera could be charged wirelessly, and communicate directly with a chip implanted at the back of the eye, so very little external hardware would be needed.

It’s from an article over at Gizmodo about installing a camera into the eye. So it wouldn’t just be an eyescreen, delivering data into the visual field, but also a camera, taking in real-world information to pass onto the visual cortex.

Maybe it’s not working technology yet, but it’s far along enough for a patent application. (Not that people wait very long for that these days, but still.)

Anyway, I thought I’d share those images with you. Working too hard on Leviathan to blog much. Sorry!

Update: The Claritin ad was sent to me by Tali (short of Natalia) Eldering. Thanks, and sorry I forgot to mention that the first time!

  5. Wow! The eye screen is totally bubbly! It’s so pretty! (Athough it is a tad bit scary. How do they place it on your eye? *shivers* )

    Still. So cool!

  6. GOD i want that tattoo!!!!!!!! I want it sooo badly! is it possible to get a flash tat that looks like that anywhere? im also getting manga contact lenses in about a month. [:
    im so excited! as soon as i leave school today im buying bogus to bubbly no doubt.

  7. I was scanning something else about this on another blog. Interesting. Your linear perspective on it is diametrically contradicted to what I read to begin with. I am still contemplating over the diverse points of view, but I’m tipped heavily toward yours. And irrespective, that’s what is so good about advanced democracy and the marketplace of ideas online.
