SMS projection

SMS projection (via Londonist) and courtesy of Troika who have been playing around in an artsy style with what will eventually be the future of device interaction. Probably a good 10 years before its time but short range projection of mobile content is the only way that devices can evolve beyond the small screen. And of course in the future why would you want to project a text message? I hate to think that SMS will still be a force in 10 years. But talk about projecting audio and images/video without the need for a physical projection surface (maybe digital paper to start with) thats the future :)

Checkout Troika's machine here. It does take the concept forward nicely, even if it is more like a form of attack/confrontation rather than interaction.
