An Infinite Object is a looping video in a permanent display that you can never update. There are no buttons, no connectivity, and no app. We call them "video prints".

Super excited to share Infinite Objects with the PH community. Our idea is simple, yet radical: we think video should be valued the same way prints, posters, and photography have been for centuries. We're doing this by permanently "printing" digital (video) content on a physical object. Something for your home or workspace - always on, perpetually present moving images, up to 24-hours long. Today you'll find an exclusively curated collection of limited-edition video art, but soon we'll be printing video of all kinds for all audiences. Very much looking forward to any feedback and questions! We're actively looking for collaborators and partners, check out our site to submit an idea and reach out about working together. Just the beginning! 🙏🏽🚀🔥

Stoked to see this live (disclaimer: I'm an investor). I realize IO just launched online and in a museum but what has been the biggest learning or surprise since revealing to the public, @jmsaavedra?

@rrhoover great q. Today, we expect any display-based (or tech in general) product to ship with a FULL featureset. We get disappointed when it doesn't have X feature or Y compatibility. One of our biggest concerns was that folks wouldn't understand that "wait, I can't change what's playing? Ever?" But to our surprise it's actually immediately understandable. I think it's a sign that we're on to something huge in that people primarily ask (A) what content is coming next and (B) how can they make their own. Video as "calm" tech is waiting to be explored - it's today's preferred content type, but it's only experienced in phones and laptops. Here's video valued for video's sake, not likes or retweets. Thrilled and surprised the message is getting through right from the start.

Putting on my sustainability hat, I would love to hear your thoughts on how you have considered sustainability and environmental impact within your design process?

@liam_roberts they didn't - it's obviously very wasteful to make such a non-updateable device to create faux scarcity. 👎
