Fictional products from the near future

HumanBeans are exhibiting at the NeuroTitan gallery in Berlin through September 1.

The exhibit, titled SPAM, features fictional and provocative products conceived by the art collective between 2001 and today: Sleepweel, a sleep manager and wrist watch; the Zapparola, stun gun and mobile phone; the Karmaphone to relax, revitalise & energise your Karma; Live cigarettes that lets you smoke and collect lifepoints for treatement of smoking related diseases;


or the anti-shock, anti-theft, anti-style Power Pizza which lets you disguise your laptop inside a pizza box, etc.


Realised as short films, these products from the near-future appeal to the consumer in all of us, but should also make us consider the values instilled in the products we buy.
