The ikBijt confesses for you

Bite down on this installation and listen to all your web 2.0 sins. You'll be the only one who can hear them, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try to better your life.

Visitor uses the ikBijt - After 5 days of "IkSentric — Hacker Camp" it's time to show some results By: Robert Keil

How does it work?

To activate the installation you have to take place in a old fashioned praying chair. When you kneel you can power up the radio by biting the copper wire conductor. The radio in turn will transmit the information compiled by the computer through the copper thread into your mouth. The radio waves will pass from your teeth, through your jaw into your inner-ear, creating a sound only the person biting the conductor can hear. When you activate the installation a voice will tell you all your web 2.0 sins. If you ever neglected someone in favor of another digital friendship you will be reminded through this construction.

Developed during Dev Camp 2010. Mediamatic Bank, Amsterdam.
