"USB Organs" (2010) by Wu Juehui (CN) enhances your sense experiences with USB devices.

USB Organs

USB Organs, during translife 2011

A person whose organs have evolved into USB Organs (sockets) is connected to cameras, microphones and speakers as sensory substitutes to feel his existence. If a future human being may not need a corporal body, at least his / her organs can be exchanged with electronic devices. We anticipate our body as a universal plug / sockets that can be utilized at any moment and at any place.

The performer wears a helmet that is equipped with a head mounted display and a microphone. A USB camera and microphone are also connected to the helmet, which function as tentacles to sense the external world. The performer experiences temporal and spatial dislocation via a pre-configured duration of time-lapse which determines the time difference caused by the two time streams: time obtained through the audio-visual senses within the helmet and the time projected from outside the helmet.
