Objects with Memory – 4 sofas, 14Gb
The Sofas contain inlaid removable disks aiming for storing and sharing contents between users. For sharing, the user just needs to plug one of the 7 cables to his laptop USB port.
The sofas were made by creative design studio Cabracega for last year’s International Festival for the Post-Digital Creation Culture (OFFF). As you can see (you’ll have to squint a little) the sofas have USB cables coming out of them. The 4 sofas store a total of 14GB of files which doesn’t seem like a lot, but I’m pretty sure no other storage device can accommodate up to 4 people. Top that Brando!
The USB Sofas are meant to encourage people to share
porn content, but depending on who you’re hanging out with it might also help spread malware instead.
