is Where Sinatra Remixes Britney

The New New — Issue Two

In which digital content is nutritious, any flavor can be recreated, humans are monetized, sunglasses change moods, and life under the curve continues.

Picking up from where the first edition started, this irregular — and often irreverent — roundup of brand experiences, culture-driven experiments, and scoops of perception is back.

Good things are still happening during life under the curve, let’s dig on in.

  1. Digital Content, now with “nutritional value”
  2. Chindogu, distinguish real un-useless inventions from the imitators
  3. Frank Sinatra remixes Britney Spears, thanks to AI
  4. Source Separation, by algorithms that listen better
  5. Vantablack, the darkest material ever
  6. Driver’s Fridge, drink and drive with Heineken
  7. 3D-printed Sushi, from biosamples
  8. Lickable Taste Gadget, recreates any flavor
  9. Your own “Social Money Economy,” let’s Roll
  10. Human IPOs, a new type of investment
  11. Alter Moods, by putting on sunglasses
  12. Me, back in your podcast feeds
