Production of the interfaces and skill shots

Our design department (JUDITH MEISTER, JOHAN TALI, OSAMA) in Vienna are busy working on the final designs of the skill extractor interface which is placed behind the ear of the skill donor and they are also producing the skill inhalators which are used by the skill consumers and which is one of the rewards for our pledgers:

This is the final model of the interface (see the pictures below). The flagella stuff (the organic strings in the bottom) will be inside the skin, connecting to the body. The end of the strings will lead to a processor, which sticks on top and is visible on the skin. When skills are extracted, a capsule is placed on top. The strings, like roots, collect the skills from the brain, through the processor into the capsule. The shorter side of the triangle is 2cm (length),  the height is 2 mm. 

The first models for the skill inhalators are recently being designed. Inside the inhalator there will be the capsule, filled with a neon liquid (fluorescin). The inhalator has a oval form and will have patterns on the smaller part, similar to the device. The small piece with the 2 holes is the mouthpiece, through which the user inhale. The capsule is visible in the gap in the middle. When it is used, the two parts get pressed together. Then the gap is closed and the capsule is not visible anymore. The material we use for the real inhalators will be epoxy. Epoxy is similar to plexiglass, a hard plastic with a transparent structure. The epoxy can be coloured- we chose the transparent colours like blue, orange and green, so the capsule inside always stays visible. The pictures of designs are coming soon!
