Hosts Are Successfully Implanted with PODS from BMC Labs


“Developed by BMC Labs, POD is an emotional sensory learning and data-mining organism designed to enhance your life.  These biotech implants guarantees personalized recommendations which are 99.999% relevant at all times.” – BMC Labs

To mark the successful completion of Body/Mind/Change, BMC Labs recently hosted a POD Implantation Evening at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. For the first time ever, POD hosts had the opportunity to meet their newly customized PODs and have it implanted for immediate use. After the installation procedure, they were then encouraged to mingle, enjoy drinks and oeur d’oeuvres, whilst taking part in the ceremonial serving of a POD-shaped cake representing the formation of their new bond with POD. BMC Labs reported that the hosts have experienced few side effects from the implantations, aside from a handful of nosebleeds and an isolated case of delirium.


Lauren Auchinclos, Dr. Janna Sensum, Florent Appich and Danny Severi were all on-hand to enjoy the festivities and meet the hosts. As well, Ana Serrano, Lance Weiler, Brendan Canning (Broken Social Scene), along with others from the creative team, were also spotted at the event.

Surprising to many, Dr. Emily Grovenor was also present. Late last year, she was reported to have mysteriously disappeared and was much believed to be deceased. BMC Labs has not returned our request for comment.
