This year’s RCA Show had the usual mix of the weird and the wonderful. I was fairly amazed by this Coin Flipper from Nitipak Samsen.
“Randomness and fate are usually used as decision making for us. Some decisions are so hard, we leave the responsibility to fate or randomness, coin flipping is one of those methods. Whether it makes us feel less guilty or believe it is the right decision. What about our true intention behind decisions? The Coin flipper aims to challenge the randomness to reveal the true intention.” See it in action here, along with the 8 prototypes that came before it. Pictured is No.5.
