Do You Want To Replace The Existing Normal?
Dunne And Raby's Statistical Clock is a conceptual device that updates and reports accidents occurring on roads and in the air.
London-based design studio Dunne & Raby’s Statistical Clock is part of their series “Do you want to replace the existing normal?” that attempts to design products for a time when we will have more complex everyday needs than today.
The Statistical Clock scours the web and collects data on all reported fatalities occurring from modern means of transport-cars, trains and planes .
More description from Dunne & Raby’s site:
The Statistical Clock checks the BBC website for technologically mediated fatalities: car, train, plane, etc, and pulls them into a database. Each technology has its own channel. The clock checks it every minute or so, and each time it finds a new one it speaks it out loud… 1, 2, 3, etc.
