Buenos Aires-based bookshop and publisher Eterna Cadencia has released El Libro que No Puede Esperar – which translates as ‘The Book that Cannot Wait’ – an anthology of new fiction printed in ink that disappears after two months of opening the book. The book comes in an airsealed package, once you open it, you only have two months to read it. Nowadays there are a lot of e-books, so authors/publishers have to come up with an attractive idea that will trigger readers to buy the printed book. With this new kind of ink they created a buzz around reading. The book was getting a lot of request and everyone was excited to read it. Do you think the printed book will survive?

So this documentary is all about service design thinking. I have read the book “this is service design thinking”, it is very interesting and we are working with it at the academy. This docu gives you a sneak peak in what I am learning at international lifestyle studies.

Body architect Lucy McRae worked together with biologist Sheref Mansy, to create Swallowable Parfum: a digestible scented capsule that breaks entirely new ground in the science of human instinct. You only have to swallow the pill to get your own perfume. Once the pill is absorbed, it enables the skin to become a biologically enhanced second skin. Synthesized directly from the natural processes of the body. Fragrance molecules are excreted through the skin’s surface during perspiration, leaving tiny golden droplets on the skin that emanate the unique odor.
In a status-driven world, everyone want to stand out. Everyone wants to have products to express their individuality and that communicates uniqueness. This perfume is different for all of us, because the potency of scent is determined by each individual’s acclimatization to temperatures, to stress, exercise or sexual arousal.

Niklas Roy his workshop is located in an old storefront with a big window facing towards the street. In an attempt to create more privacy inside, he decided to install a small but smart curtain in that window. The curtain is smaller than the window, but an additional surveillance camera and an old laptop provide it with intelligence: The computer sees the pedestrians and locates them. With a motor attached, it positions the curtain exactly where the pedestrians are. At the end it didn’t help him to get more privacy, because passengers were very interested in this curtain.
