RayFish Footwear

OK, so this is a pretty incredible (as in I’m still not quite sure I believe it) product.

These guys (RayFish) have a process they call “bio-customization” which is basically creating a transgenic stingray.

Using the DNA on file in our genetic library, you can combine the skin patterns and coloration from dozens of different species. Access the richness of natural selection. Evolve an infinite variety of shoes.

Yeah. Shoes. So basically, they have a tool on their website where you can “design” a custom stingray–the actual fucking animal. Then they grow one and harvest the leather from it to make your shoes.

Yup.

They have a little video that doesn’t really do it justice, you should follow that link up there and play with their tool.

They’ll end up running about $1800, and while I’m not about to drop that on some shoes it actually seems pretty reasonable to me. I mean for a custom genetically engineered creature (well I guess it takes two, one for each foot) to be harvested specifically for your shoes.

What a cool idea and implementation.

There’s no sound editing in this video … Technically, the game board is a capacitive sensor, and the variations of the shape and their salt concentration, the distance and the strength of the finger contact are detected and transform into an audio signal.

The project is by Raphaël pluvinage and Marianne Cauvard.

Given the bonsai tree in their photos, it seriously reminds me of The Fountain.
