Devices for mindless communication

This project speculates satirically about possible roles of technology in face to face conversation. Modern human behaviour is largely driven by time efficiency and a clear tendency to minimise the cognitive impact of all actions which are not pleasurable ends on themselves. From those to save you from redundant situations, to devices that help push clever conversations forward, all of them respond to different aspects of the trend towards mindlessness when interacting with others, as well as its possible side effects.
