It goes without saying that these days, we're all living the digital life. But sometimes it's still pretty cool to see the small and not-so-small ways in which technology permeates the world we live in. And that's why I'm launching Crave's latest feature, a weekly video blog in which I find the coolest techno-happenings in my beloved home city of New York and document them with a handheld camcorder and a video crew consisting of...me.
This week, for my inaugural post, I check out the creative, innovative, and often totally absurd fusions of art and technology at New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Program, which had its semi-annual student show a few weeks ago. Would you wear a solar-powered bathing suit if it could generate enough power to cool a six-pack of Budweiser at the beach?
Next week: playing Wii Sports in one of Manhattan's hippest downtown hotels.
