Soundbombs

Lki

Invented by Felix Hardmood Beck, a Berlin designer, they're "innocuous-looking 6-inch plastic shells that broadcast short clips (lines from Shakespeare, flatulence, or anything else you record) to unwitting passersby," according to Sean Cooper's story in the current (November, 2006) issue of Wired magazine.

Not just anybody can buy one, however: they're only sold via Beck's website to those who submit an application "describing what the device will be used for and how much they're willing to pay."

According to Cooper's article Beck has so far received 2,500 applications: no word on how many have been approved.

Inquire within.

No speak English?

No problema: Español aqui.

Deutsche? Jawohl.
