Soundbombs – record something and then startle people


The Soundbomb Project. Apply to buy one of these motion sensitive, recording and playback toys and you can set it up to startle passers-by with your own choice of loud noise. Oh yes, they call it art. Oh and only those who ‘deserve’ one, will be able to buy one, so get over it, Mr Gates.

 Soundbombs are New-Media-Accessories. Each one a lowtech object for interactive transmission. An integrated soundmodul makes it possible to record any given sound and then activate it through a motiondetector. As a Non-Visual Graffiti, with its origin in streetart, Soundbombs give the possibility to tag a place in an accoustic form: a welcoming greeting at the entrance or a warning of a bad restaurant. Each owner can leave a personal message anywhere and at any time. Soundbombs can whistle, laugh, belch or recite a poem.
