An Australian Professor Grew An Ear On His Arm And Plans To Hook It Up to Wifi so Everyone Can Hear Him.
Source- An artist who is growing an ear out of his arm has revealed how he plans to connect it to the internet so people can use it to listen to him. Australian oddball Stelarc has told how he wants to make the extra organ a porthole for people to listen in to his life, wherever they may be. The Curtin University professor, real name Stelios Arcadiou, originally came up with the idea for the ear back in 1996 and managed to convince a team of boffins to go ahead with it using his own tissue samples. Early attempts to install a microchip proved fruitless, but now the 69-year-old has announced plans to use his own stem cells to make the ear more three dimensional so that the microchip can be put in without the possibility of infection, and then linked up to wireless internet. He told ABC: “This ear is not for me, I’ve got two good ears to hear with. This ear is a remote listening device for people in other places.
The bottom line to this guy is that you have to be suuuper cocky to believe that ANY ONE wants to listen you you blabble 24/7 over the internet and through your wonky gross arm ear all all things. I mean spending twenty years boiling over the thought that people want to listen to you sooo much from your arm ear is cocky. He just pursued the idea for 20 years. twenty years. Thats insane. So much so that this guy probably as insane as Hitler. Oh you want to make sure your propaganda is spewing 24/7 from your arm ear? I bet hitler wanted to broadcast his kampf to millions of the arian nation too he just wasn’t looney enough to have an ear grown right in the middle of his forearm (and probs lacked the tech.)
This also is another reason why i hate a lot of art hipsters. Always wanting to be weird and show off and all of it to some degree is because they’re craving attention. “Oh look at my funky hair cut, i draw lines on this canvas to convey my emotions. oh look at my arm ear, i want the world to listen to everything i say.” So annoying. The worst.
