The Idea

A platform on Wechat for users to donate their voices for the blind. A one-minute text message is pushed to the donor’s device by our system. Through the voice function, one-minute audio books can be created. The system performs an analysis to the voice messages received and put them into an order. The audio books will be available to every blind person over Wechat.

It’s interesting to see the increasing amount of autonomy, personalisation and control people are getting over their products.

This trend isn’t changing when it comes to clothes. People want their clothes to be unique and different from others and retail brands are exploring technology to create new models of production and new marketing opportunities relying on personalisation. 

This is not the ‘Maker’s Revolution’ yet but we’re heading on that direction; and this could be the first step for people to start making their own clothes from scratch. 

Personalisation is happening in different formats: from partnerships , to app that enhance brand personality… to artistic and experimental project… And I must say this one is my favourite.

Generative Scarves is a project by the London design studio Convivial. A range of scarves that feature intricate patterns randomly generated by algorithms. Each piece from the Generative Scarves range is unique.

Penguin-Companhia has developed a way of turning social media’s habit of distracting us into a means of motivation to finish a book.

A smart bookmark that detects when a book has been left unfinished for too long and sends the reader a tweet from the author, reminding them that they still have some reading to do.
