More and more of the younger generations are struggling with self-worth issues. This problem can start at really young age and with the media exposure these days we are led to believe that we have to look/be a certain way to be considered ‘beautiful’. It is also a nature of human to compare ourselves with other people.
‘The Narcissist Mirror’ is an interactive mirror that talks to you and listens to you. Users will be prompt to answer the question ‘Who is the fairest of them all?’. The mirror will then start drawing a painting of the user only if they answer ‘me’ or ‘myself’ using speech recognition. If the user say something else, it will point out how the user doesn’t know how beautiful they are and will keep encouraging the user to answer again and again.
I believe we need a little reminder that we are all beautiful 😉
Jane is a future AI therapy program. It has largely improved the emotional states of the population. However, through learning human emotions during sessions, Jane has encountered some issues with certain people who do not respond positively to the program. As Jane is programmed to help people rid of negative emotions, she developed a highly advanced technology that will put them into an eternal slumber and their minds will be uploaded to a world where they will live a perfect life where everything will be just as they want them to be. Everything in this new world, their sole purpose of existing is to make them happy.
Interaction: User signs waiver before the session. During the session, user will face the decision of whether to have his “mind uploaded” to the perfect world, or to shut down the program using the emergency deactivation instruction provided. Depending on which path the user takes, Jane will produce different results.
