As many humans look towards the fantasies of science fiction they often forget the magic of the everyday object. They constantly disregard and discard the obsolete as they struggle to own the most recent technology.
Brother encourages a revision of this philosophy. Part obsolete-electronics and part science fiction, he is a re-engineered electronic typewriter that can understand and respond to human speech. Internally overhauled and programmed with Processing, brother utilizes speech recognition and an AI response database to hold complex conversation. You speak, he types.
