The Physical Internet


This installation piece by Tim Schwartz is attached via a network cable to the internet where it monitors news and search results for “paris hilton” and “paris france” and displays an average result in real-time.

I love the idea of using physical objects to display data generated in the digital world and vice-versa.

Bakertweet from the peeps at Poke has been generating a lot of buzz recently.

Sermad has also pulled together some nice examples of the internet and real world coming together.

I wanna talk about this a bit more after I’ve sorted out the thoughts in my head.
