Nokia embraces Persistance of Vision
You know about POV, where an image stays with the eye/brain for a short time after the actual image has been replaced with something else. Its why TV and movies, although through broadcasting a series of still frames, ‘show’ motion. Anyway, Nokis Nokia has come up with a cover, called a Fun Shell for its new 3220 phone. This shell lets the user type in a short text message, then wave the phone in the air to display the message using the lights on the back. Oh boy. That’s just what we need. A bunch of geeks, running around waving their phones at each other, inciting riots by sending such messages as: “STFU!”, “U L0S3R”, “PH34R M3″, etc.
Who thought this was a good idea?
