Here's an art installation that I'd like to steal emulate for Burning Man. These communicate with each other via RF and sense the world around them with motion detectors. When there's no one in the room, they roll around and murmer to each other...but when a person enters the room, they all freeze and pretend to be dead. The only way to observe them in their animated state is to freeze yourself. They also react to your touch...if they like the way you treat/touch them, they'll emit pleased sounds. But if one of them feels abused, they'll all start screaming. Heh. The possibilities for a variation on this for the playa are just wonderful, don't you think?

Want to know more?
