Art has crossed the line and is now (finally!) digestible. Czech artist, Jan Poope has created the ‘Audiopill’, an alternative to ecstasy that vibrates and creates a dance party in your digestive tract. Developing the Audiopill from a medical device called Sirio (which was originally designed to heal injuries using low-frequency ultrasound waves). the artist intends for you to feel like you’re standing near an intense audio system but this time, the musical experience is inside out.
Legal but not medically approved, the pill supports a magnet-activated motor which once you’ve downed it, can’t turn off until you clock over 10 hours or it comes out the natural way. And once again, this was designed by an artist named ‘Poope’… you really can’t make this stuff up.
Surprisingly, Poope’s pill has failed to meet its €150,000 target (which we’re certain has absolutely nothing to do with the company’s incredible blurb), which means unfortunately we’ll have to feel the music the way we always
have: by listening to it.
