Sorry we're a little thin on the ground today - the servers are still a little hung over.

To change the subject have you seen any floating text messages recently?

The SMS Guerilla Projector is a home made, fully functioning device that enables the user to project text based SMS messages in public spaces, in streets, onto people, inside cinemas, shops, houses… Small, portable, and battery operated, the SMS Guerilla Projector contains a mobile phone which enables the device to receive and project messages from other people.

It's currently being played with around London to quite funny, weird and creepy effect.

Its unpredictability creates a very special and disturbing experience for the people who watch the projection, and invites them to reflect on the content or the implications of the message.

Sounds like fun? You can read about how the projector was first used as a fan pleaser at a Mike Skinner gig here. Get in touch with Troika for more information.

Via.

This is one step nearer something I've wanted for ages...

A couple of year ago I bought a Cyberdog LED scrolling message display T-shirt, where the LED display is attached to the T-shirt by velcro, you peel it off and enter the message through a little keypad on the back. It occured to me, however, that it would be so much easier if I could text my message to the display.
