    streetclock:
    enriching the urban environment with informational values.

    Sounds like semi- useful grafitti to be honest...do we really need to randomly know it's 3:11 PM?

    Streetclock - great. something else to avoid while on a bicycle.

    miragraphy - reminds me of the presentation at DC8? 9? done off-site, where a guy had digital processing with cameras mounted in glasses that fed to projectors in the same glasses, to allow him to see what the cameras could see.
    He suggested digital replacement of advertisements in real-time with special glasses, and further commented on abuse of such technology where images of things not really happening could risk lives.
    SmartBoard technology is common place today with whiteboard/desktop/tv projection all in one.
    It is only a matter of time before grocery stores include video projectors to shine images on the floor that are interactive, and move to avoid carts/people/objects.

    Here we go.. DefCon 7
    Steve Mann - Inventor of the so-called "wearable computer"
    http://www.defcon.org/html/defcon-7/defcon-7-post.html
    There are links for the audio and video of the presentation. It starts out slow with technical difficulties, but has som interesting ideas/content once they get it working.
