    mid-air messaging

    Ok, I'm a geek. Always have been, always will be. So you KNOW it's bad when *I* laugh at a technology and say "wow.. that is USELESS."

    Tell me that doesn't just make you roll your eyes and laugh.

    Darkilla: In short, NS is pretty much really fast chess. With guns. Apophis: I haven't seen anyone say that SM's are better than non-SMs. Nordbomber: This is THE first server I've seen where either side can comeback from out of seemingly nowhere with the right teamwork. en4rcment: I have NEVER experienced the type of gameplay that I have found here. Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent. Zephyr: Apophis is clearly a highly sophisticated self-aware AI construct that runs on a highly modified toaster oven in Wyzcrak's basement.

    Re: mid-air messaging

    wow.

    Useless for as cellphone, sure, but I would LOVE to have one of these on my car/bike.

    Easily tell folks "please don't tailgate" or "your tail-lights are out" without screaming pantomimes out a window @ 65mph..

    What's gonna crack me up is when people can crack the devices and make other people's phones display messages ..

    Re: mid-air messaging

    Yet another reason to ban drivers using cell phones while the car is in motion.

    But then, I think about half the people in the US shouldn't have qualified for their licenses anyway.

    Probably including me, and I've never even been in an accident.

    ... so how would you use it on a bike? Attach it to a spastic metronome?

    They have had these things for years. Only difference is that they are on phones now, useless yes but will most likely be very popular for the young ones. Just like color displays, No need and you cant forget games on a cell phone........Play them for a first couple weeks you get the phone and whenever you so bored that your druling.

    Yeah, I used to have a clock that worked like this. The LEDs were on a metronome-like device...

    Re: mid-air messaging

    I think its a pretty good gimmick. I wouldn't pay money for it, but I would like it if I was given it.

    Re: mid-air messaging

    You guys are nuts.... this WILL sell.

    The US sold millions of the twisty handles that spelled out when you spun them around and around. Saw them at clubs, night life venues, and night time sports events.

    The cool thing about this twist on the cellphone is you can give someone your number without have to yell it to them. Ever wanted to give that hot chick on the highway your # but couldn't because she was in front of you??

    Well, TAAAAHDAAAAA!

    I run my $#@! new school style with old school roots...
