cheap technology

 

ive been researching cheap technology that i can incorporate in my promotional product than can incourage connections with people

i’ve looked at tubular proximity sensors, proximity switches, and proximity sensors (used in iphone to turn display off when you put the phone to your ear)

also, more natural occuring technology like magnets, shocks (static + metal) and components with mercury that can react or act differently when in conjunction with other elements/each other. goal = create a literal and/or physical reaction to encourage connections (maybe shock would discourage it…) but also looked at car alarms and stuff

here’s some stellar sites about cool stuff coming up in the world—to expensive for now but still awesome
