Berlin-based artist Markus Kison has integrated pure art and technology in his project called Pulse. Here's how it works: Pulse searches Blogger blog posts for key words -- words found in Robert Plutchik's three-dimensional circumplex model which revolves around the psychoevolutionary theory of emotion. OK, let me start over. After keywords are found, Pulse mechanically reacts, pulling and reshaping the "organism".

Implications - The featured idea about creating a machine that works by bloggers typing words on the Internet is interesting because of how active it is. The idea that people are constantly on the Internet is key knowledge for businesses. In order for a business to be successful in today's society, it is very important to be a part of the online world.
