I study people, technology, and the worlds they make

Words in the air

This is cool:

Nokia is making a mobile that lets you write short text messages in mid-air.

The messages are written using a row of LEDs fitted on the rear cover of Nokia’s forthcoming 3220 phone.

A motion sensor in the phone makes the lights blink in a sequence that spells out letters when the handset is waved in the air.

[To the tune of ‘Til Tuesday, “Voices Carry (Single Mix),” from the album Coming Up Close – A Retrospective.]


  1. How most excellent! Imagine the concerts, the hook-ups across crowded bars, and the opportunity to curse legibly at other drivers!

  2. Also, nice iTunes tie-in.
