This weekend, Dutch Design Week will host a new kind of supermarket that will exhibit conceptual nanotech-made products speculated to hit the market in the next decade. The NANO Supermarket will have in its shelves, innovative and useful products envisioned by artists and technologists to represent a future where nanotechnology wil shape our lives, for better or for worse.
Next Nature on a sample of products available at the NANO Supermarket:
Wallsmart – Interactive wallpaint
This paint gives you the freedom to change the colour of your walls with the push of a button. Just paint any surface once with the product and nano particles in the paint will give you the option to change colour just by choosing on from the accompanied computer program. If you get fed up with your choice just pick a different colour and the walls will change instantly into the desired hue.
Each course of a fancy diner should be accompanied with a soothing wine. But why buy each different type separately when you can get them all out of one bottle? Nano Wine is a basic grape product that is mixed with nano sized flavour capsules. When exposed to microwaves these capsules release their flavour. Different wattage and duration of exposure means you create a different type of wine. Just open the vanilla capsules when you are in an Australian mood. Truffle puts you in an Italian atmosphere and for a smooth Merlot won’t have to do anything.
NanoLift – Physical Photoshop
What would your life look like if you had the ability to change the shape of your face on a daily basis? Not just retouch parts through make-up but actually alter the physical form of your face. The Nano Lift is a product that could make this a reality. All it takes is one trip to the cosmetic surgery clinic, where they will inject a grid of tiny magnetic nano particles into your skin. From then on you can adjust these particles at home with the accompanied magnetic stick. The particles are connected with your skin, so adjusting the grid means physically changing your face.
