TL;DR: A faster response to context congruent objects demonstrated that the direct surrounding is able to affect responsiveness to affordances, and an enhanced N2 Event Related Potential (ERP) component evoked greater response conflict when responses needed to be withheld.
Abstract: Recently, human behavior has been considered the product of continuous interactions between perception, cognition and action in which "affordances" (action possibilities the environment has to offer) play an important role. Converging evidence suggests that multiple action possibilities simultaneously compete for further processing, while external and internal factors (e.g., incoming sensory information, predictions) bias this competition. In the present study we used a stop-task to investigate whether context is able to modulate the strength of the responsiveness to affordances. We therefore placed participants in an actual kitchen and workshop during electroencephalographic recordings. A faster response to context congruent objects demonstrated that the direct surrounding is able to affect responsiveness to affordances. In addition, when responses needed to be withheld, context congruent objects evoked greater response conflict as indicated by an enhanced N2 Event Related Potential (ERP) component.

TL;DR: A set of experiments is outlined designed to explore how the authors can embed memories in objects augmented with non-discernable nanotechnological interfaces and whether the object can successfully embody a wish or fear and how the participant experiences living with a physical reminder of these secrets.
Abstract: This paper outlines a set of experiments designed to explore how we can embed memories in objects augmented with non-discernable nanotechnological interfaces It explores whether the object can successfully embody a wish or fear and how the participant experiences living with a physical reminder of these secrets As such the experiments draw on more traditional paper-prototyping and body-storming techniques The goal is to assess if the introduction of nanotechnology as a magical unknown can be used to seed and affect our relationships to objects and archived memories
