A project by Sofia Aronov and Shan Jin for Fake Love - The New York Times
Oubliette is an interactive device that utilizes real-time image query to gather visual glimpses of the culture behind iconic music devices. Placed inside our apparatus, the object is instantly identified through realtime object detection: an image query from Google then gathers images through the use of custom tags.
 
The images found are then displayed on the transparent screen, generating a dynamic portrait of the object’s era, a panorama of its trends and memories.
Users can swap different object in and out to get lost in the magical atmosphere of our favorite decades.
