Future Objects built in local citizen dialogues

 *Under Development

Introduction

This page displays objects created by citizens as part of the NANO2ALL citizen dialogues in France, Israel, Italy, Poland, Spain and Sweden in 2017. Citizen dialogues aimed to produce citizen narratives of the futures to enrich the stakeholder reflection processes in sub-sequent multi-stakeholder dialogues. Citizen narratives of the futures consisted of exploring possible future directions of nanotechnology in the application fields of Nanotextiles, Brain-machine interfaces and Nanomedicine and discussing potential impacts of these future directions and their desirability. Building future objects allowed citizens to depict their ideas about the potential directions that technological advances in a specific nano-application fields might take. The created objects, therefore, did not serve as actual prototypes for future technologies that citizens wished to see realized, but they functioned as a device to explore future technological directions and provide both tangible and verbal leads for reflection on these directions. You can read more about the NANO2ALL dialogue methodologies and preliminary results of these events under the “resources” section of the NANO2ALL website.

 

Doctor Plupp

This is doctor Plupp. It is a divice specifically developed for children that checks and restores vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Each morning, the child had to blow into the tube. The air ir then analysed and you can immediately see what substances the child is lacking. Inside the divice, there is a storage with many types of nano-encapsulated substances. When a lack of a certain substances is detected, Doctor Plupp will release the required substances and the child will receive them upon another inhale through the tube.

Sit, Safe and Relax

This is object is a seat lining that can be used in public transport and eventually also in private cars. The seat lining has adopted nanotechnologies to create antibacterial properties and to autonomously neutralize harmful particles, which may derive from the continuous passage and usage of seats by the many people who travel in public transport. This lining also has breathability properties and is able to release the heat to ensure that it remains fresh and comfortable to sit on. In addition, it will be self-cleaning and eco-friendly, being made out of organic cotton and other sustainable and eco-compatible material. Lastly, the seat is equipped with a device for aromatherapy and listening to music.

Tele-transmission flower

This is a device that can help send information from one brain to another. The flower can dire a nanoparticle into someone's brain that can extract certain information from that brain. This information is communicated to the flower device and is then transferred using a nanoparticle to someone else's brain. With this device, sales assistants in stores can immediately understant what you are looking for, and in schools teachers will be able to immediately understand what a pupil is thinking about and why it is or isn't easy for him/her to the exercises. Of course, we can choose to open or close the tele-transmission with the other.

 

Smart-safety-glasses

This device is designed to warn people when their level of concentration and focus is too low to do a certain task. Think of car-driving or performing a an operation on a patient. The device consists of a nanochip in the brain that measusres an individual's level of concentration. This information is communicated to a pair glasses that the individual needs to wear while performing the task. If the concentration level drops below a certain level, a warning message will appear on the glasses and the individual is required to take a rest.

Emovivencias

This object is a helmet equipped with electrodes for all parts of the brain. It functions as a central and external interface which can be connected by cable to objects such as books, paintings, or museum visits in order to enhance one’s experience of those objects, reliving past experiences, experiencing new sensations or boosting one’s own sensations for an immersive experience. Imagine connecting to a scary book and feeling fear or reading a passage about food while tasting the flavours and smelling the food. The object can be more than just entertaining – it can help one learn lessons from the past by reliving those conditions, learn more deeply.

 

Telepatía (Telepathy)

Intercommunication + pure identification: This object is a small earring or ring, or another accessory that can read brain waves and communicate telepathically and non-verbally with other people in a targeted fashion. The device interphase would be in one’s mobile phone, allowing users to choose with whom to share their own images and sensations and from whom to receive similar information.

Nutritional controller

This object is a nano-biosensor that is introduced in one’s arteries to measure the level of nutrients such as potassium or vitamin C. It sends the signals to a smartphone or other connected interphases such as smart fridges that alert the user of potential deficiencies and advises them on how to remedy the problem. This device can help people with anemia, diabetes or those who suffer allergies, which can be detected in the blood.

Mental key

This is a nano-object made of graphene that re-stimulates neurons with the same function or reconnects damaged brain areas to the rest of the nervous system so that brain capacity/functions that have been lost due to injuries can be regained.

 

Relationship facilitator

This object is made of two external devices, a ring that contains the device interphase and a needle-like device that is inserted in the earlobe and whose tip contains a graphene molecule sensitive to emotions and ideas, being tuned in to various sensorial cells. The “facilitator” can be activated during a conversation: information on the wearer’s emotions is sent to the ring, “translated” and presented in a descriptive and clear way. The ring also serves as a sender and receiver of information generated by other people. A tactile screen presents different areas to act on or take decisions about. The end result is that two people having a social interaction can check how their relationship or interaction on a particular topic, potentially helping to preserve friendships and avoid familiar tensions.

Blood coagulation nanodrug

This is a model of a self-assembling sheet for repairing damaged blood vessels. This medicine is designed for individuals with blood clotting deficiencies and is injected into the blood as a liquid where it circulates uninterruptedly. Coagulation is triggered by contact with air and starts from the edges of the wound towards its centre. The molecule self assembles as a sheet covering the surface of the wound and preventing blood loss.
