Is it too late to order up one of these for Halloween? But it’d be kind of lonely bounding around in the parking lot while the party rages inside. How do you say: “Hey everybody, come outside and watch me kick Ultraman’s butt” in Kaiju?

The buildings in the town of Vercorin in the Swiss Alps contribute to an impressive piece by Felice Varini, called Cercle et suite d’éclats. The pattern was projected on the town from the vantage point, then traced and painted. Photographs from the same spot in daylight make the town look flat, almost like a postcard. What I’d like to know is how he got the town to go along with it; I could see an easily-repainted suburb in the States being convinced, but this quaint (and much older) town in Switzerland seems like a much bigger challenge. Don’t miss the panorama picture on Varini’s site. [via Core77]

Intended to help one train themselves to smile, it uses a bend sensor to detect if it’s wearer is smiling, and then stabs them with a meta spike (!) if they aren’t. I could easily imagine this being part of the official dress code in some creepy dystopian society. Interesting take on a personal augmentation device, though. [via core77]
