Brain Computer Interface ]

Emotiv ]

Based on the latest developments in neuro-technology, Emotiv has developed a revolutionary new personal interface for human computer interaction. The Emotiv EPOC is a high resolution, neuro-signal acquisition and processing wireless neuroheadset. It uses a set of sensors to tune into electric signals produced by the brain to detect player thoughts, feelings and expressions and connects wirelessly to most PCs.


Artistic and creative expression - Use your thoughts, feeling, and emotion to dynamically create color, music, and art.


Life changing applications for disabled patients, such as controlling an electric wheelchair, mind-keyboard, or playing a hands-free game.


Games & Virtual Worlds - Experience the fantasy of controlling and influencing the virtual environment with your mind. Play games developed specifically for the EPOC, or use the EmoKey to connect to current PC games and experience them in a completely new way.


Market Research & Advertising - get true insight about how people respond and feel about material presented to them. Get real-time feedback on user enjoyment and engagement.


]Inter-nodal, neurological, colour-creative, FLIP FLOPS….

Let’s get neural- net, processor creative[

Elliott Erwitt but framing these lovable creatures through my viewfinder has helped me find a connecting character in all these foreign places".

Underwater Sculptor

Jason de Cairis Talyor's underwater sculptures are moving, haunting and lets face ti unusual, not the subject matter but the location - somewhere in the ocean off Mexico.... whilst one can appreciate the magnificence's of the work and it is truly beautiful with its ephemeral surfaces (all work is made from materials that are durable, secure and environmentally sensitive) has any looked into fi there are any negative effects?? How about the sea floor in which these pieces are placed - are they obstructing other flora and fauna?

It's true that artificial reefs lifts the pressure off our natural reefs, which have been in many cases over fished and destroyed and Ripe can see the positive benefits that these sculptures now-come artificial reefs do provided and despite mixed feelings overall, Ripe would still love to suit up and dive down to see these visual marvels.

Ripe recommends you check out his site for more details.

Binary Code Pysco-Graphy

Recently Ripe posted a graphic representation of the H1N1 virus. In addition to the visual representation we also included a binary code representation which was sequenced without any real code referencing.

Just found out what the off- hand binary code looks like text formatted..



It’s a shame, we really thought the binary code would represent at least something text legible, although when you think about it.

what is H1N1?

Of course it’s been DNA mapped, which derives its genetic footprint, but how would that data look in binary code ASII? Could the DNA code simply be collated into Binary? Whenever you see rudimentary DNA code it’s been visually represented as punch card data?

Of course there’s the double helix, but in data form isn’t DNA Code Sequence graphically represented as Punch Card Data>


Just Googlayed “DNA Code Sequence” & found that Punch Card Data image. The correct terminology is a DNA Auto-radiogram.

So the question still stands, can a DNA Auto-radiogram be transcribed into Binary Code ASII? Fuck that let’s pump it to ‘Next Level Assemblage™’. How would you write Boards of Canada’s ‘The Campfire Headphase’ album in Binary Code?????

Is it possible to supplant emotion into Binary Code? & in this circumstance, could intense emotional experiences, such as a euphoric Techno Verve ™ experienced from a music source be represented in Binary Code?

Is it possible to equate transcendence with 1’s & 0’s?

Answer Please …

(Music Has The Right To Children, makes me want to catch a spaceship to NoWhere), I LOVE YOU :}
