Bus Stop Stories #2

“I love you Singaatra !”. He said inebriated to the singer on the floor. ” You make me forget my woes.”

He turns to the “Dash Juice Bar”, looks to him and says,
“you know I work daily only because you fill me up every night. You know man, I used to love my life before the blue dots intervention.
Since the time they put up the contract they have been constantly nagging me with their notifications. Affecting my performance with other useless tasks. Now I even get hit by the owner because of the blue dot irritation. Its a blue menace my friend, it will take us all down one day I tell you.”

He was almost full, when the Juice Bar closed its’ port at the table. And before closing reminded him,

“Don’t forget your fatherland, my friend. Remember your duty towards the all encompassing G-God”.

The blue-red-yellow-green lighted emblem on the “Dash Juice Bar” Charger dimmed down.

Bus Stop Stories #1


” Should I talk to him now ? “.

She thought looking anxiously to the suited figure walking towards the parked Mercedes. She adjusted her circular glasses , looked at her tweed shirt and the washed out denims. She surveyed the area, to control the nervousness. An old lady was bathing the morning sun-rays at her rooftop, while looking down on the alley. A group of IT workers crossed the street bitching about their job, fondling there smart dog tags to get the morning tea. She became more nervous after meeting few of there ogling gazes.

” Should I talk to him now ?”.

The shutter of the shop started moving up. The owner of the shop has arrived. She needs to start prepping for the job. She will not see him again, in a moment of logical fuzziness , she signalled him.

” It has to be today, I am 100% sure about it.” She turned away from the window of the shop and moved near her work station on the floor.

[ Pair with Iria-261AIer43 ? ]

Mzod-BoroBoro was in a state of stasis at the sudden notification for pairing up came to him. His processors were activating the doors and priming the engine as the owner reached him.

LayZ Lamp

Design Brief : PLAYFUL TRACE

We leave an invisible trace of information while we are at home.
That are recorded and monitored constantly by our always on devices.
Which can be expressed through playful dialogues and interactions.

Taking the defined design objectives ahead led us to define our Design Concept.

( Object = Lamp ) + ( Character = Lazy ) + ( Adaptation = Machine Learning )

Translating the above into a viable solution led us to create our object, we named it

Layz Lamp has its own character and its behaviour is independent of the human interaction. It likes to listen to music but does not like disturbance or work. It is social and also has a religion. Though it daydreams and sleeps most of the time it prefers human companion.

We imagine it to look like this –


Based on this we started making a prototype for the same. After a few attempts at understanding the mechanism, we came up with the final prototype. Check out the life of our Layz Lamp also 0.5 in the video below.


Are you more interested to know about the lamp ??? Scroll down to see the feature and control flow diagrams.

 We also planned a storyboard for the launch of the product 🙂

The whole project would not have been possible without the help of my team mates. The project was done in collaboration with Domus Academy and Open Dot Fablab in Milan.
