I love robots.
I can't remember where I found this, but I really liked the idea of a dolphin saying more than "Thanks for all the fish". I wonder what videogame it's from.

"You can press, grab, twist, punch and play with the screen. It can even support your full bodyweight. The Hyperfabric screen is specially designed to communicate with a computer to generate interactive computer graphics, in realtime."

"Been reading your igargoyle site for a while. I just finished this digital art project, and I thought you might be interested.
It's a digital art project called "Hyperfabric" that creates a very
touchable touchscreen, made out of an elastic-like fabric, so the screen warps like rubber, and can sense how hard your press it, where you press it, and you can even have lots of people using it at once, you really feel like you are going "through" the screen."
Since this is an installation, it probably helps a lot if you are able to get up close to interact with it. I wish I could experience it, since it's hard to imagine, even with these mysterious photos.
