Last year, SXSW had a continuous stream of music by bands playing the festival available at most places in town where you could get a wireless signal. This year, there’s a single 700 MB torrent you can get of all the tunes. I prefered to dip into the stream as opposed to commiting to the download, but the new way seems popular:
Dear Sir or Madam:
I wanted to let you know about a great gadget that would greatly appeal to your visitors. We have been in business for over five years, and this product has no competition on the market!
Hokey Spokes Hokey Spokes are transparent “blades” that attach to your bicycle spokes. As these blades spin during riding, a computer inside the blades modulates the internal string of LED lights to produce design images and custom text.
The user can decide on the number of spokes and a variety of colors they want to place on the bicycle wheel. Up to 6 “blades” can be placed on each wheel. The more blades, the more visibility and persistence of vision at lower speeds.
The blades cycle through a number of pre-set designs, or alternatively, the blades can be programmed to display text messages that play continuously.
The blades actually synchronize with each other by communicating with each other via an infrared communication scheme during spinning. Therefore, you can pass along a message to another rider simply by placing your wheel next to theirs!
Wild and eye catching at night, the blades offer the rider 360 degree visibility to traffic.
