This is a cute little exploration of some ways to interact without
touching. The implementation is a bit Rube Goldberg but may say
something about ambient interfaces in general.

Best regards,

Plurality of Voice

I am growing disgusted with the IxDA list. I wonder if I am the only one.

Many conversations lately have featured a very small number of contributors very vocally arguing minute details in a long serial of posts. As much as I have enjoyed the open and inclusive nature of this list, I am now wishing there was a daily limit of posts that would force certain people to be more thoughtful in what they say, and how often they say it.

Please try to be your own editor.
